Even though breakfast and lunch are being provided free of charge for all students this year, the National Free and Reduced Lunch program provides more than just meals for students who qualify. That is why we are strongly encouraging families to fill out an eligibility form for free and reduced-price meals before Wednesday, Jan. 27.
Did you know that school districts receive money each year for every form that is filled out by an eligible family? This educational funding helps us provide meals, lower the cost of activities and reduce fees for students who qualify. Filling out a form will not have any impact on your child’s ability to receive free meals this year, but it could result in additional financial assistance for your family.
In Lindbergh, those benefits include:
50% reduction in student technology fees
50% reduction in middle school and high school annual activity fee
Financial assistance for eligible Lindbergh Community Ed and Rec programs. This includes up to 50% registration reduction for many sports and activities.
To complete the Free and Reduced-Price meal form, please download this application and return it before Wednesday, Jan. 27. Forms can be returned by any of the following methods:
