Families encouraged to apply online for free and reduced price meals

On Sept. 15, changes in Federal funding allowed our district to begin offering breakfast and lunch to all students (preschool through grade 12) at no cost. (Learn more HERE)  LINK: http://www.district112.org/blog/2020/09/23/meal-kits/

The free meal program is scheduled to continue through the end of 2020, but Federal funding may end at any time. Because we don't know precisely when funding may run out, families who feel they may qualify for free and reduced lunch services should apply online now using the Application for Educational Benefits.

Funding from these meal applications assist in so much more than just free- or reduced-price meals: funds provide compensatory revenue for your child's school, discounted sports fees, and discounted fees on college applications.
