The Free and Reduced Priced Meal Program is available to assist families during times of financial hardship. The School Nutrition Program accepts free and reduced meal applications anytime throughout the entire school year.
Students approved for free or reduced-priced meals may eat a breakfast AND lunch meal free or at the reduced cost. Parents can be assured that the information supplied on the application is kept strictly confidential and student identification is protected with computer software at the cashier station.
For faster processing use our ONLINE application. Click the links below.
Please read the instructions carefully:
It will be a household application, so please submit only one (1) application per entire family/household via either online application or by returning paper application received at school or link found below.
Be sure that your child has money on his/her meal account until you receive formal notice that the 2020-21 F&R meal application has been approved. You will see a confirmation # at the end of the online process; however, this is to let you know the application was submitted for review - this is not an official notification of approved eligibility.

MealCharge policy and Courtesy Snack
The Board policy for students without adequate funds to purchase school meals allows for elementary students to charge up to 5 lunches. Negative meal charges are not allowed for middle or high school students, adults, or for any ala carte purchases. Students who have unpaid meal charges will not be allowed to purchase ala carte food items until meal charges have been repaid.
Elementary students who have exceeded the charge limit, as well as middle and high school students without sufficient funds for lunch, will be offered an alternative snack of a cheese sandwich and milk or juice. To prevent your child from being offered the courtesy snack, please provide money for your student's meals each day or prepay for meals in advance. School cafeterias make every effort to inform students and parents when funds are low with notices sent home via student, verbal reminders to students, and apple stamps.
Parents are responsible to ensure that children have an adequate lunch from home or sufficient funds to purchase school meals. To assist parents, student account balances can be monitored any time via www.mypaymentsplus.com regardless of whether you use the online funding option, send cash or checks, or you may call the school nutrition program.
To view a student meal account balance (or to fund their account) go to and www.mypaymentsplus.com create an account. Add your student(s) by entering their student ID# and selecting their school. The account balance displays in the middle of screen. We also recommend that you set a Low Balance Alert ($10 or higher is suggested) using the links on the page to receive an email reminder when funds are low.
