    Please Help Increase Our School Funding by Filling Out This Application!

    Although school meals are now free to all students, the application for free and reduced-price meals is still very important.  School funding depends in part on the number of students at our school who qualify for free or reduced-price meals.  With all students now eating for free, fewer families are completing the application and our school is at risk of losing much-needed educational funds. Plus, students who qualify for free or reduced-price meals may also be missing out on discounts on bus transportation, before and after school care, and home internet!   

    Even if you did not qualify before, but your income has changed, you may now qualify. For example, children from a family of four are eligible if the total gross (pre-tax) household income is less than $4,279 per month, or less than $51,338 per year. Household income information is confidential and applying online is quick and easy.  Apply online at MySchoolApps.com, or pick up a paper application in the school office.


    Online registration for the 2022-2023 school year is ongoing. Please visit: New Student Enrollment for enrollment information. 
    If you have questions, please  contact your child(ren)'s schoolsite administrative assistant.
