Congratulations, Mr. Blair

We would like to extend a big congratulations to 4th grade teacher, Mr. Chris Blair, as he has been selected as one of ten Phillies All-Star Teachers this year. Mr. Blair was nominated by some of his students and parents. Mr. Blair will be honored this Friday, May 6th, with a pregame celebration and presentation at the Phillies vs. Mets game. This is such a great honor for Mr. Blair and our school community! Thank you, to the Phillies and to David and Gabe for nominating Mr. Blair for this great honor!

Free and Reduced Lunch

Dear Central Bucks families,

School breakfast and lunch has been available for Central Bucks School District students at no cost since March 2020. Reimbursement for the cost of providing these meals has come through a United States Department of Agriculture Waiver issued to the Pennsylvania Department of Education. This waiver suspended free and reduced lunch eligibility requirements, allowing for universal participation in the National School Lunch Program. The waiver is expected to expire at the end of June.

In anticipation of this, we wish to remind families of the following:

  • Eligible families are strongly encouraged to apply for free and reduced lunches. Families may apply through an online application that is safe, secure, and private. Visit for details. All children in households eligible for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) benefits are eligible for free meals. If you have questions about your family’s eligibility, please send email to Renee Ziccardi at or contact your school nurse.
  • When the waiver expires, students may again purchase lunch, a la carte items, or snacks through their MySchoolBucks account. Now is a good time to log on, bring your child’s account up to date if money is owed, and update expired payment information. Review frequently asked questions about school lunch accounts on our website. Your child will not be able to utilize their account to purchase a la carte items or snacks if it is past due. If you have questions about your child’s account, or if you believe the balance information is inaccurate, please contact Renee Ziccardi at

Thank you for your patience and support as we return to regular food service operations.


Abram M. Lucabaugh, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
