New Student Lunch Information for the 2022-2023 School Year:
During the last two years, pandemic child nutrition waivers have been utilized to provide free meals to all students at school. On March 10, 2022, the U.S. Senate passed the Omnibus Appropriations bill, which did not extend these waivers that expired on June 30, 2022.
Therefore, the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs will be reinstated for School Year 2022-2023, offering school meals at the paid, reduced, and free rates. Families who believe they may qualify for free or reduced-price meals may complete an Application for Free or Reduced-
Price School Meals during the enrollment process for SY 2022-2023. Families who do not qualify for free meals will be responsible for paying for their child(ren's) meals at the reduced or paid rates.
The District will continue to provide any added information regarding student meals as it becomes available. Please contact our Food Service Department at 620-663-7141 if you have any additional questions.
