Tuesday final day to submit free or reduced price meal applications
Families that may qualify for free and reduced meals must submit an application form to Moffat County School District food services for the 2015-16 school year by Tuesday.
Some households received a letter in the mail notifying them that they qualify for free and reduced price meals based on receipt of SNAP benefits. These households are not required to submit an application.
Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
Households that do not receive an automatic letter must fill out an application for the current year, available in school registration packets, on the food services website or from the front desk of each school. Only one application is required per household. A letter in the mail will notify applicants whether they do or do not qualify. If a letter does not arrive, call the food service office at 970-824-2160 to confirm the application was received.
Families that qualified for free and reduced meals last year will be considered eligible for the first month of school, but must submit a new application to continue in the program. Families must pay meal charges if an approved, current application is not on file.
Households that qualify for free or reduced meals may also qualify for free or reduced book fees, class fees, sport and athletic fees and drivers education fees. Qualification for free or reduced sports and athletic fees must be identified before participation in any sport, and fees will not be waived after the sport or athletic program has begun. Applications must be on file prior to Sept. 29.
Households whose circumstances change during the school year may apply at any time, however fees for programs will not be waived prior to the date of approval on the application form.
Contact Karma Willbanks in the Food Service Department at 970-824-2160 for questions or more information.
