701.04 – Free or Reduced Cost Meals Eligibility

Students enrolled and attending school in the school district, who are unable to afford the special milk program, the cost or a portion of the cost of the school lunch, breakfast, and supplemental foods will be provided the school food program services at no cost or at a reduced cost.  It is the responsibility of the business office to determine if a student qualifies for free or reduced-cost school food services.    Students, whom the principal and Nutrition Director believes are improperly nourished, will not be denied the school food program services simply because the paperwork has not been completed.

Employees, students, and guests will be required to purchase tickets for meals consumed.  It is the responsibility of the Superintendent to develop administrative regulations for implementing this policy.
