Free and Reduced Meal Applications

  • Students in lunch line at Chelsea Heights

  • Every SPPS family should complete an application for Education Benefits/Free or Reduced Price Meals. Not only does this help us identify families in need of assistance, it also allows the District to receive federal dollars for classroom programming.

    A new form must be completed each school year. Additionally, families who have completed an application and have experienced a change in household income or size are encouraged to complete a new application.

    Here are some frequently asked questions regarding applications.

  • Who should you contact if you have additional questions?
