School Lunch Updates 22 - 23

2022 - 2023 Meal Price Update

The federal free school meals program, which automatically qualified every student to get access to free school meals for the last two years, has ended following the expiration of federal waivers enacted at the onset of the coronavirus
pandemic. Breakfast for all students will continue to be free through the universal free breakfast program. If a student is not eligible for free meals, the student/parent is responsible to pay for meals.

School nutrition programs are preparing for the return of pre-pandemic meal rules during the 2022 - 2023 school year and we are encouraging families to plan for it, too.

We will continue to make free and reduced-priced meals available to households who qualify and encourage you to fill out application forms and return them to your child's school.

Application forms for free and reduced-priced meals are sent home with each student the first day of school and are available for those students who qualify throughout the school year. You may ask for a meal form at the school office or click here to download a PDF of the form that you can fill out. If you have questions regarding free and reduced price meal forms, please contact Chris Smith at 740-867-3135 or [email protected]

Menus and meal prices are posted in the cafeteria and on the school web page available here. Money can be paid by check, cash, or online.

Cafeteria Meal Prices:
Breakfast:  Free for all students

Lunch:    $2.90
$.40 cents if you qualify for a reduced-price lunch

Your children may qualify for free or reduced-price meals if your household income falls at or below the limits on the chart.

Privacy Act Statement: This explains how we will use the information you give us,
The Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act requires the information on this application. You are not required to provide information, but if information is not provided, the state agency cannot approve your child for free or reduced-price meals. You must include the last four digits of the social security number of the adult household member who signs the application. The last four digits of the social security number is not required when you apply on behalf of a foster child or you list a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Ohio Works First (OWF) case number or other identifier for your child or when you indicate that the adult household member signing the application does not have a social security number. We will use your information to determine if your child is eligible for free or reduced price meals, and for administration and enforcement of the lunch and breakfast programs. We may share your eligibility information with education, health, and nutrition programs to help them evaluate, fund, or determine benefits for their programs, auditors for program reviews, and law enforcement officials to help them look into violations of program rules.
