Annual Renewal Required

Free and Reduced Lunch Info

The Nutrition Services Department is reminding parents that their child's (or children's) free or reduced meal benefits are set to expire soon.


We highly encourage that you submit your Free and Reduced Lunch Application AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. If you received meal benefits in the past, you must re-apply each year.


If you already applied this school year for benefits, you will not have to re-apply.


To expedite this process, please apply on line at www.lunchapp.com or you can request a free/reduced meal application in our Main Office.


If your family qualifies, here are some potential benefits:

  • Free lunch (or reduced price) for your child.

  • Free and Reduced numbers help schools receive Title I state and national financial support.

  • Reduced rates with Comcast for internet and computer purchases.

  • Blessings in a Backpack participation.

  • Possible support through the holidays.


Our goal is to reach all and provide a healthy lunch at either a reduced rate or free.


Students who receive free or reduced meals are held in strictest confidence. Staff and other students are not made aware of any student who receives a free meal. Students DO NOT need to provide this information when receiving a lunch, all students (free or not) receive their meal in the same way.


If you have any questions please contact either the Nutrition Services Office at (248) 623-8001 or our Main Office (248) 623-5100.


Sincerely,



Brian Adams

Principal

Blessings in a Backpack

Blessings in a Backpack-Clarkston is a “neighbor-helping-neighbor” program that is designed to help bridge the gap of the nutritional needs of children from Clarkston Community Schools. Each week, we distribute backpacks filled with enough non-perishable food for the weekend to students that qualify on the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch program. The goal of Blessings in a Backpack is to keep these students from going hungry on the weekends and remove barriers to academic success.


In order to receive Blessings in a Backpack, families must select that option during the Free and Reduced Lunch Application. If you need assistance getting signed-up for Blessings in a Backpack, please contact Mr. Adams.
