Remote families who wish to have Spring Pictures may come to school between 12:00 - 1:00. Students must wear an appropriate mask and pass health screening questions before entering the school for pictures.


We all know the huge impact that COVID-19 has had on families. If your family has been impacted then we encourage you to apply for Free or Reduced Lunch. Our school is in jeopardy of losing our entire Title 1 Department and all Title 1 funding if we do not increase the percentage of students who qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch. By going ahead and applying now, it will help us demonstrate the need in our community.

Please remember that this is always confidential.

Now you can apply online for your children to receive free or reduced-price school meals. Your application will be sent from a secure website directly to the Buncombe County Schools School Nutrition office, so you don’t need to worry about filling out a paper form that could be lost or misplaced.

LunchApplication.com is an easy, secure and convenient way to apply for free or reduced meals. It has been designed to make it easy for you to know exactly what information you need to provide and to guide you through the process. Once your application has been received the district office will determine your eligibility and send you a letter with the results.

To apply, simply go to LunchApplication.com or CLICK HERE to apply now!

Need a paper application?
Free and Reduced paper applications are also available from your child's school office or your cafeteria. These will need to be filled out and returned to the cafeteria or mailed to:

Buncombe County Schools School Nutrition
175 Bingham Rd.
Asheville NC 28806
