Nutrition Services

Through work with state and federal lunch program administrations, breakfast and lunch will be free for every student in the Westside Community Schools for the 2021-22 school year. Ala carte items and extra portions will cost money and require having money in your My School Bucks account. You can access My School Bucks through your PowerSchool parent login

Free and Reduced Lunch Information

Even though meals are free for students, families who would qualify for free or reduced lunch benefits should still fill out this forms and submit.

  • Qualifying for free and reduced lunch is how we are able to offer fee waivers and reductions for students and families meeting the guidelines of this program.
  • These include waivers for activity fees, ACT and SAT tests, materials costs for some classes, and much more.
  • In order for the school to provide these waivers and reductions a couple things must happen.
  • Apply and be approved for free/reduced lunch benefits. This can be done online at https://www.myschoolapps.com/.
  • Complete the Sharing of Information form attached below. This form gives the school consent to share your free/reduced lunch status solely for the purpose of offering waivers. These can be turned in at the WHS Nutrition Services Office. If you have questions, please contact Michele Divoky at divoky.michele@westside66.net or 402-390-338.
