Summer School Meal Update

The USDA waivers that allowed all students to receive meals at no charge during the last two school years will expire on the last day of school. For BSSD, this will be May 25th. Summer School will mark the return of normal student meal prices. Those already approved for free and reduced meal benefits for 2021-2022 will be automatically approved for free meals during Summer School and the first 30 school days of the start of next school year (2022-2023). All students that are eligible for Free and Reduced meals will be able to eat for free this summer.

If you did not apply in 2021-2022 and you feel you qualify, we ask that you please complete the 2021-2022 Free and Reduced Meal application and submit it as soon as possible. We need your application completed in order for your child to eat for free during the 2022 summer session. This data is also used for your possible eligibility for P-EBT benefits, funding, and grants for many programs. If you have not received notification in an email or letter regarding eligibility for your students for SY 21/22, your students will transition to full pay eligibility at the start of summer school, June 6. You can apply online and review some helpful links at our Nutritional Services website.

If you are not eligible for Free and Reduced Meal Benefits but are planning to send your child to summer school, please make sure to add money on their account at school cafe website: www.schoolcafe.com. This will allow them to be able to take advantage of the breakfast and/or lunches provided. Below are the 2019/2020 meal prices that we will continue to honor for summer schools, 2022.
