    NEW Volunteer Updates

    Free Meal Application and School Benefits-please apply!!

    For the 2021-2022 school year, all students will receive school meals at no charge; however, I encourage all families to complete the online application for free meal benefits at www.myschoolapps.com.

    While all students will receive meals at no charge, the application provides other key benefits – additional funding for schools, technology assistance and discounts for students such as clothing and college entrance exams. All households are encouraged to apply. Completing the online application is secure, convenient and worry-free. Results are available within two working days. Eligibility is based on household size and income. Once approved, the benefits are good for the entire year.
