Lunch Charges / Free and Reduced Price Meals Statement
Free and Reduced Price Meals Statement
The USDA implemented valuable waivers for school systems across the country in the fall of 2020. These waivers allowed students to eat school meals every day, at no cost. Thanks to these timely waivers, school systems were able to ensure students of all ages were able to maintain nutrition during the pandemic. In addition, the waivers allowed school systems to receive valuable reimbursements to offset rising food costs experienced within the last two years. The free meal allowances have been extremely helpful to families and school systems alike.
These unprecedented waivers will expire on June 30th. As waivers expire, many students and their families may be surprised to learn this valuable meal resource will end. This means students and their families will once again be charged for school meals for the 2022-2023 school year.
As in years prior to the pandemic, families may apply for free or reduced price meals, based on eligibility. Interested families may apply starting on July 1. Many local systems, including Bradley, Catoosa, Hamilton, Walker and Whitfield counties are trying to get the word out to students and their families. If a family feels they would qualify for free or reduced priced meals they may apply at lunchapplication.com, starting on July 1, 2022 for the upcoming school year.

News from Parent & Family Engagement
Welcome Back from Title I and the Family Resource Center! I hope everyone
enjoyed the holidays and had a fun, family-filled winter break. It’s hard to believe
that we are already halfway through the school year! If you haven’t had an
opportunity to come by and visit the Family Resource Center, now is a great time.
We have many resources available just for parents. Books and DVDs can be
checked out of the resource library at any time. Also, if you have time to
volunteer, we could use your help anytime between 8:30 am and 2:00 pm. We
encourage all parents, grandparents, and guardians to get involved with their child’s
education. If you have any suggestions on how to improve our Title I Program,
budget input, or school improvement, we welcome your comments. See Kathy
Honeycutt, Parent Involvement Coordinator, or Lori Welborn, Principal.

you for supporting our Fundraisers. Look for more fun times coming in

We will reward and recognize students with excellent attendance this year!
