    “Welcome Back to the 2022 - 2023 School Year”

     

    School Lunch

    The District’s USDA approved school lunch provides one-third of the Recommended Daily

    Allowances (RDA) of the five basic food groups for children K-12. Under federal regulations known as “offer vs. serve,” students can opt to take a minimum of three of the five components of a meal or all five for the price of a complete lunch. All students must take at least one serving of fruit or vegetable.

     

    Free/Reduced Price Meal Application for “Sharing Information” (Pay to Play & Title One Funding)

    For those who completed a free or reduced price meal application last school year, you MUST complete and submit a new form after July 1, 2022 and before October 7, 2022. Families may complete their Free/Reduced price meal application at https://farmington.familyportal.cloud/ or submit a hard copy.  Hard copies may be printed from the District’s website or copies may be picked up at each school’s main office. Parents are asked to complete the online form or mail or drop off the completed printed form to the Nutrition Services Department located behind East Middle School (see address at the end of the story). Please be aware that turning in applications to the school offices may delay processing. Parents will be notified by email or mail about whether or not the child qualifies. Please allow 10 working days to receive a confirmation letter.  Be sure to fill out a Sharing Form when filling out the Free & Reduced-Price Meal Program application.
