Findley Flyer-Summer Update
Dear Findley Families,
The beginning of the school year is quickly approaching! I hope that our Falcons are enjoying their summer break.
This summer newsletter includes some important dates and information to keep you informed as we approach the start of the school year. It also includes an introduction to our new teachers and staff joining the Findley family this school year.
If you know of any new families who may not have received this communication, please feel free to forward this along to them. It will also be posted on our website. More communication will be coming out as we approach Sneak Peek and the first day of school.

Important Information from Fulton County Schools School Nutrition
School Breakfast & Lunch Meal Prices SY23-24
School meals offer all 5 food groups at an incredibly wallet-friendly price. Prices cover food and operational expenses to prepare the food.
*For families that qualify for reduced meals during SY23-24, households will not be required to pay the reduced price of $0.30 for breakfast and the $0.40 for lunch due to Georgia Department of Education funding that will be used to cover these costs.
- At Elementary and Middle Schools, the meal price includes up to 1 entrée, 1 fruit side, up to 2 vegetable sides, and 1 milk choice.
- At High Schools, the meal price includes up to 1 entrée, up to 2 fruit sides, up to 2 vegetable sides, and 1 milk choice.
All students can decline food groups, as long as there is at least a ½ cup of fruit or vegetable plus 2 other food groups on the tray. For the same price, students may select 3, 4, or all 5 food groups for a complete meal!
The Free & Reduced Meal Benefits Program is a part of the National Child Nutrition Program. This program makes Free or Reduced Priced meals available to qualifying households. Qualifications are based on the gross income of all household members and the number of persons living in the house. A NEW application must be completed for the 2023-2024 school year. Households are responsible for payment of meals until the Free and Reduced Meal Application is approved. Applications are available online at www.fulton.schoollunchapp.com and in paper from any school cafeteria. If able, families are encouraged to complete the online application to help expedite the application approval process.
Households are encouraged to prepay for student meals and extra sales using MyPaymentsPlus. Benefits of MyPaymentsPlus include online availability 24/7, viewing student account balances and purchase history, and setting up low-balance alerts. Visit www.mypaymentsplus.com to sign up and get started. Cash or check payments can also be made at your student’s school in the cafeteria.
