WELCOME TO THE 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR!
Lunch Program Information
National School Lunch Program free/reduced applications will be sent to all households the first week of August. Households that are directly certified through the State of Illinois SNAP/TANF program will receive letters stating such, therefore, will have no need to complete an application. All students that receive free/reduced meals at the end of the 18-19 school year will be carried over for the first thirty operating days of the upcoming school year. During that time, an updated application must be submitted and approved, or the student will be removed from the program and revert to a full-pay status. Applications not submitted and approved prior to the start of the school year are subject to charges to the student’s account that are the responsibility of the parent/guardian. Funds must be deposited into the student’s lunch accounts prior to the first day of school unless notification has been received stating approval to the program has been given. Any questions related to the process can be directed to Mrs. McConnell, Director of Nutrition, 815-313-3930.
