Reapply and Submit Your Application Annually
To maintain free meals for everyone, applications must be submitted every year. The free and reduced program includes one free meal for breakfast and lunch. If you received assistance last year, it will continue until October 16.
Applications also help to maintain other state educational funding which pays for classroom resources and reduces school fees.
No Cost Meals at Broad View Elementary, Crescent Harbor Elementary, and Olympic View Elementary
Beginning with the 2023-24 school year, the district will provide meals at no cost to students enrolled at Broad View Elementary, Crescent Harbor Elementary, and Olympic View Elementary in accordance with HB 1238 to provide no cost meals to students enrolled at elementary schools where 40% or more of enrolled children are eligible for free or reduced-price meals. “Elementary schools” are defined as schools that serve students in kindergarten, first grade, second grade, third grade and/or fourth grade. Regardless of other grade levels served in the school, any school that serves students in any of the above grades qualifies as an “elementary school.” Once a school qualifies under HB 1238, all students–regardless of grade level–will be offered meals free of charge. HB 1238 has a phase-in approach with the requirement expanding to elementary schools with 30% or more enrolled children eligible for free or reduced-price meals in school year 2024-25.
To expedite your application, we encourage you to fill out an electronic application. You only need to fill out one application for all of the members of your family.
It can take up to 10 days to process an application so make arrangements in the meantime to provide money for meals or meals from home during that period of time. After your application has been processed, you will receive a letter stating the benefits for which you are eligible. Applications are available in the school office, administration building or online.
