School Meal Changes - VERY IMPORTANT

Due to changes in federal laws, school meals will no longer be free for all students. In order to qualify, parents MUST complete the free & reduced meal application. It is very important to complete this form as soon as possible so that your child/children do not incur a negative balance. The quickest way to complete the application is the online link embedded with the picture below. Additionally, we do have copies at the school and copies were mailed out to all D6 students this summer.
