News and Information

Diane McElravy, Cafeteria Manager, today announced its 2020-2021 program year policy for free and reduced price meals for students unable to pay the full price of meals served under the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program. Each school office and the central office has a copy of the policy, which may be reviewed by any interested party.

The Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines will be used for determining eligibility. Children from families whose annual income is at or below the Federal Guidelines are eligible for free and reduced price meals.

Application forms are being distributed to all homes in a letter to parents or guardians. To apply for free and reduced-price benefits, households should fill out the application and return it to the school. Additional copies are available at the principal’s office in each school. A complete application is required. Households which currently receive Special Nutrition Assistance Program Benefits (SNAP, formally known as food stamps) or Ohio Works First (OWF) funds for a child must provide the child’s name, the SNAP or OWF case number and signature of an adult household member on the application. Households which do not receive SNAP or OWF funds must provide the names of all household members, the last four digits of the Social Security Number of the adult signing the application or state “none” if the adult does not have a Social Security Number, the amount and source of income received by each household member, (state the monthly income) and the signature of an adult household member. If any of this information is missing, the school cannot process the application.

FREE HEALTH CARE: Families with children eligible for school meals may be eligible for FREE health care coverage through Medicaid and/or Ohio’s Healthy Start & Healthy Families
programs. These programs include coverage for doctor visits, immunizations, physicals, prescriptions, dental, vision, mental health, substance abuse and more. Please call 1-800-324-8680 for more information or to request an application. Information can also be found on the web at http://jfs.ohio.gov/ohp/consumers/familychild.stm. Anyone who has an Ohio Medicaid card is already receiving these services.

The information provided on the application is confidential and will be used only for the purpose of determining eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school year by school or other program official. To discourage the possibility of misrepresentation, the application forms contain a statement above the space for signature certifying that all information furnished is true and correct. Applications are being made in connection with the receipt of federal funds. Schools or other officials may check the information on the application at any time during the school year. Deliberate misrepresentation of information may subject the applicant to prosecution under applicable state and federal laws.

Households will be notified of the approval or denial of benefits.

Foster children are categorically eligible for free meal benefits regardless of the household’s income. If a family has foster children living with them and wishes to apply for such meals or milk for them, contact the school for more information.

With the end of the 2019-2020 school year, the District has begun looking ahead to the 2020-2021 school year in accordance with state and county health department guidance with an emphasis on keeping everyone safe and healthy.. While we all hope that we’ll be back to school in the fall in a traditional school setting, we must plan for any variety of possibilities. Options may include a normal return, to continuing remote learning to a blended option which combines online learning with some face to face learning. As you might imagine, planning for the return of our students is a challenging task in a normal year, but the unknowns facing the District this year presents an entirely different challenge.

Please take a few minutes to complete this important survey. Each family only needs to complete it one time. The survey will gather current views on remote/virtual learning and returning to school in the fall. As always, we appreciate your thoughts and concerns during this difficult time and we appreciate your feedback to help us better service our students and families.

PLEASE COMPLETE THIS SURVEY BY FRIDAY, JUNE 19TH.

To complete the survey, go to: https://forms.gle/fnxgS7YtUScw8sm67
