Additional Information

  • One application needed per family each year.
  • This form used to be called the “Free and Reduced Lunch” form.
  • The income thresholds are higher than in some programs, so many families are surprised to find they DO qualify.
  •  If you wish to decline benefits, families will need to so on the paper application, or they can email with their student's names and decline benefits that way.
