Free Meals for All Students Ending- PLEASE READ

Free Meals For All Students Ending

As the 2021-2022 school year comes to an end, so will the free meals for all students in the Eldon School District. For the past two school years, the federal government has funded a program that provided free meals to all students at school throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Earlier this year, Congress declined to continue funding this program.

We will continue to offer the FREE Breakfast for ALL students at South Elementary, Upper Elementary and Middle School.  In order to qualify for free or reduced lunch at these buildings and free or reduced breakfast and lunch at the High School a meal application must be submitted for the 22-23 school year.  Listed below are the meal prices for the 22-23 school year.

Parents are asked to fill out the 22-23 school year Free & Reduce Meal Application at registration. You can turn in the completed form to your child’s school office or central office. If your family qualified for free or reduced meals last school year, your students will be given a 30-day grace period at the start of the 2022-2023 school year to complete the application.

The school district is encouraging all families to fill out an application. Even if you think your family won’t qualify, your application can help the school district in many different areas including federal funding and qualifying for grants.

Completing an application is the only way to be considered for free or reduced meals.

If you have any questions regarding free or reduced meals or need assistance with filling out an application, please call your child’s school office or Shawndra Taylor at 573 392-8000.
