Did you know that the Free and Reduced Meal application provides more than meals for LCR3 students?
The District needs your help to ensure our students are receiving the supports they need. Thanks to a USDA Federal grant, meals continue to be free for all LCR3 students through the end of June 2022. With this, many of our families are not completing the Free and Reduced Meals application. We understand that this form is not necessary to receive free meals this school year. However, the number of qualifying applications that we do receive also directly impacts the Federal funds received by the District, which helps provide services such as:
- reading and math interventions,
- social and emotional supports,
- college application, ACT, SAT, and AP fees, and
- dual enrollment tuition
To ensure all of our students receive the services they deserve, we are asking all families to complete a Free and Reduced Meal Application. By returning the completed form (1 per family), each child included on the form will be entered to win either a Nintendo Switch Lite (grades Pre-K through 8) or $200 in gift cards (grades 9 through 12).
Please complete and return the form, found on the left of this screen on a desktop or at the top of the page on a mobile device, to your child's teacher or building office no later than September 27.
Thank you for your help in supporting all LCR3 students!
