FREE AND REDUCED PRICE LUNCH POLICY

 

In accordance with federal regulations, The school district shall make available to all children of low economic means and children of moderate income families experiencing financial difficulties free or reduced priced lunches through the School Lunch Program in the local school.

 

The procedure for securing lunches in effect in the school will be followed, i.e., tickets or tokens.  These tickets will be issued through the building principal.  Parents who believe their children are eligible may contact the building principal and a determination will be relative to their eligibility.  Parents may appeal a negative determination to the School Board and the Superintendent of Schools.

 

The only means of determining the children who are receiving free or reduced price lunches will be through the school office.  This information will be confidential; thus, the children will remain anonymous.
