  • Free and Reduced Lunch Program

  • Students from families whose income is at or below a government-specified level may be eligible for free meals or reduced price meals.

    Application forms are available at the school offices, by calling 316-722-0900, or by clicking here.

    The form may be completed at the beginning of or any time during the school year. Families who receive food stamps need only submit the form letter they receive from the SRS for direct certification.

    Determination of eligibility for free and reduced price meals will be made based on current income. Students whose parents or other adult household members have been temporarily laid off may qualify if the total household income falls within the guidelines.

    School officials are required by law to verify by random selection the source and amount of income, as well as household composition of at least 3 percent of all applications each year.
