All Parents & Guardians,
As we are approaching the end of the first semester, I would like to remind everyone of a program designed to help in times of financial need and assistance. The National Free and Reduced Meals Program is available to any child attending the Fair Grove R-X School District. You may contact your child's Principal's office or our Food Service Clerk, Mrs. Paula Smith at (417)759-2233 ext. 535 for an application form or click here for a printable copy.
It is important to know that these Federal Funds are set aside every year for our school, as well as all schools across Missouri. The amount (percentage) of students we enroll in this program plays a big part in determining our Federal Funding Level. It is also important to note that these funds do not go back to the Federal Government if not allocated. If not used, these funds will be sent to other high need school districts such as St. Louis and Kansas City.
It is our goal to enroll 100% of the students that need this service and keep these funds right here in Fair Grove to assist our school and community patrons. We are asking for your support in this matter by completing an application form, even if you're not sure you qualify.
Mike Bell, Superintendent
