Students in ALL grade levels are eligible to receive Free or Reduced-price meals in accordance with USDA guidelines. Students may also be eligible if the family receives benefits from SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program; formerly Food Stamps).
Students who are eligible for Free or Reduced-price meals may also be eligible to receive fee reductions or waivers for other services. Student fee waiver-eligibility is based on how you qualify for Free and Reduced-price meals. Fees will automatically be waived or reduced on your eligibility. There is a separate form that must be completed.
