Parents and Guardians,
As the 22-23 school year approaches, we want to remind you about the significant change in school meals.
School Meal Programs across the country will return to normal (pre-pandemic) procedures for the 2022-2023 school year as the Covid-19 USDA waivers expired on June 30, 2022. This means breakfast and lunch meals are no longer free to all students but will be based on income eligibility.
While many of our Fair Grove students still qualify for free and reduced-price meals, too many aren’t enrolled. Many families may be eligible (or newly eligible) and may not know they qualify for these meals. Others simply may not know how to apply.
The challenge now is to ensure Fair Grove families know the free and reduced meal program exists and how to apply in the midst of these difficult economic times.
Completing a free and reduced meal application is a quick and easy, confidential online application. You can always apply if you are not sure and see the results. We are seeing many families qualify that didn't think they would.
If approved, your child will not be singled out or identified. Their meals simply become free or reduced in the system and they slide their identification card like normal.
To apply for free and reduced meals go to www.fairgroveschools.net and click on the free and reduced meals tab for further instructions.
