Families with students in grades K-8 who receive food stamps and/or TANF should have received a letter in mid-July notifying them of their free status for the 2015-16 school year.  If you receive this notification letter, you do not need to complete the Free/Reduced Meal application.     

Parents receiving this letter should check to make sure that all school-aged children are listed on this letter.  If there is a mistake on this list, a parent should contact LSC @ 765-771-6140 ext. 7364.


Families with students in grades K-8 who do not receive the TANF letter will need to complete a new application.  Only one application per family needs to be completed.


Parents of high school students who think they may qualify for assistance for free or reduced-price meals will have online access to the application for assistance when registering their child online.  Application forms for assistance will also be available in the General Office at the high schools.
