Lunch Applications

Hello Families,

Although students do not need to pay for their meals at this time, the free/reduced meal code assists with District funding. Please be sure to update your lunch applications. Families may complete an application online at or a paper application is available at the school.  Thank you!



Meals2Go will also continue on days when students learn from home and for students in the Remote Learning Program. With new federal funding procedures under the CARES Act, all students may receive school meals at no cost to families for the immediate future. Students will receive meals in the school cafeteria on days when they learn in person. Meals will still be available for pick up each Monday (two days of meals) and Wednesday (three days of meals). Coordinate pick up to best fit your families needs. Because Nutrition Services staff will also be serving meals to students at school, beginning Oct. 5, elementary and middle school Meals2Go pickup will be 9:30-10:30 a.m. and high school pickup will be 8:30-9:30 a.m.
