Free and Reduced Price Meals are available to families who believe they may qualify.
The federal guidelines require a new application each year and parents must meet income requirements for their children to be eligible for free or reduced meals. Last years status will not carry over to this school year.
If your family chooses to apply, you can pick up a new meal application at:
- Your students school office,
- Nutrition Service Office at 2929 Clover Basin Drive - Longmont, CO 80503 or,
You can apply online at www.myschoolapps.com.
You will be notified by mail of your child's status. Until your application is approved, parents should send lunch money or a sack lunch with their child each day.
Only complete one application per family. The information you give will be used to determine or prove your child's eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits.
Factors considered in the application process are household size and total household income. HOUSEHOLD SIZE is considered all persons, related or unrelated: Including parents, children, grandparents who live in your home and share living expenses. The TOTAL HOUSEHOLD INCOME is the income each household member received last month before taxes - this includes wages, social security, pension, unemployment, welfare, child support, alimony, and any other cash income.
Foster children are categorically eligible for free meal benefits. An application is not needed yet there does need to be documentation of status by a state or local entity familiar with the child's status. However, a change in the 2016-17 regulations states that Foster children may be included in the household application as part of the household size.
