• **Households that are experiencing a loss of income due to the government shutdown may apply for school meal benefits using their current income situation.  The new information will be used to determine eligibility for free or reduced-price school meals.  That eligibility will be good for the remainder of the 18/19 school year and the first 30 days of the 19/20 school year.  Parents can apply online at www.myschoolapps.com  or request a paper application from our Cafeteria Manager Mrs. Despointes at DESPOINTESN@pcsb.org or by calling 469-4112 ext. 2050.
