Free/Reduced Meal Benefits

Breakfast and lunch will be FREE for the 2021-22 school year due to a waiver provided by USDA to support access to nutritious meals. It is still very important to complete an Application for Educational Benefits (formerly the Free/Reduced Meals Application) to determine if your child qualifies for discounts on athletic and activity fees, some technology fees, and Community Education and Preschool scholarships. Your application also helps the district qualify for grants and additional funds to support students and educational programs.

A new Application for Educational Benefits form MUST be completed each school year and submitted to NPAS Nutrition Services for review and approval. It is critical that you submit your completed application as soon as possible. If you do not qualify now, you may apply at any time during the school year.
