Food & transportation
We are pleased to announce that all meals are free to all students this year. However, we still need all families to fill out a meal application every year. Increased returns directly impact our funding, and it only takes a few minutes.
Meal applications can be completed online at www.myschoolapps.com. You only need to fill out one application for your household. Contact the school if you would like to fill out a paper application instead.
The application is available in multiple languages via a drop-down menu in the upper right hand corner. You will need to have the following information ready to complete the application:
The names and incomes of every member of your household
The school, grade, birthdate of every student in your household. (Optional)
The last 4 digit of your social security number
Submit your meal application today.
We need every family to submit one every year in order to continue our funding!
