2020 Fall School StartUp Announcement - A breakfast and lunch meal is provided to all students daily at no cost due to the USDA’s extension of emergency feeding programs as the country continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. Free meals are temporary and will be provided through the 2020-2021 school year. Additional items served, such as second servings and a la carte items, are not included with the free meal program and funds will be required to make these purchases. Meals will require payment when the free meal program expires.
