National School Lunch Program for 2022-23

Due to the COVID pandemic, the meals through the National School Lunch Program have been free to students this year because of the USDA Waivers. Unfortunately, the waivers have not been extended past this school year. Currently, we are anticipating starting SY23 as normal and going back to the Free, Reduced, and Full Pay meal status for students.

Students who are currently in Free or Reduced status will have a 30-day grace period at the beginning of next school year to allow parents and guardians time to complete applications to determine if they qualify. Students who are in Full Pay status will be charged accordingly for meals starting at the beginning of the school year.

Month of the Military Child

Friday, April 15th we will be recognizing Military children. We will have these students come down the the flagpole in the morning, help raise the flags, and sing the National Anthem with our PPE choir. We are also asking students and staff to wear purple this day in support of our military children. Parents are welcomed to come and gather by the flagpole at 9:15am.

Last call for boundary exempt forms

Boundary exempt forms are all done online this year and can now be completed for the 2022-2023 school year. These were due by April 8th! Please follow the instructions and let the office know if you have any questions regarding this. This must be done every year and you will still need to do the online registration in July. Emails will be sent out once next year's registration is live.

For 5th grade students please check your boundary school. You may be zoned for another school than Colony Middle school.

This is for students outside of our boundary. You do not have to fill one out if you live in Pioneer Peak's boundary. Make sure you are choosing 2022-2023 school year!

Stuff could be snacks, candy, or trinkets, just another from their home place. They send the box to us, and we will label them with the location they are from.
