Annually, we post these items on our website, at each school and office, and mail them to homes when necessary. They are provided to all new students with the enrollment packet.

All families are notified if they qualify through the Virtual Gateway. We will extend those benefits to all children within the household. We ask that they contact us with this information when they are informed that one or more children in the household have been determined eligible.
