FREE MEALS FOR ALL STUDENTS IS DISCONTINUED FOR THE 2022-23 SCHOOL YEAR
For the past two years, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has offered waivers to Child Nutrition (CN) Programs across the United States, allowing these programs to offer all students breakfast and lunch, at no charge. These waivers expired June 30, 2022. This means that starting next school year, 2022-2023, our food service program will return to normal, pre- pandemic operations. All families should complete and submit a Free/Reduced Meal Application if they would like to see if their students qualify based on the income of all family members.
Fairfield Schools is committed to assisting families and making the transition back to normal operations as easy as possible. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
We encourage every family to submit a Free/Reduced Meal application. Based on household size and income, you may qualify to have your child's academic fees waived. Follow this link to submit your application: www.myschoolapps.com or download the app to your phone.
