Free or Reduced Carry-Over Status Ends Oct 13

Free or Reduced Carry-Over Status Ends Oct 13
Posted on 09/30/2022
This is a reminder to all AASD families that were approved by direct certification or through an application for Free or Reduced Meals for the 2021-2022 school year. Carry-over status, which allows families time at the start of the school year to submit a new annual application will expire on Thursday, October 13

All families without a current and completed Free or Reduced application will revert back to full pay for meals on Friday, October 14. Please submit your completed Free or Reduced application to determine eligibility for meals for the remainder of this school year. Households must be certified annually to continue benefits. 

Please note, families that attend a CEP School (Community Eligibility Program) will continue to receive meals. However, we encourage all families to submit an application if they feel they would qualify as they may be eligible for additional benefits such as Pandemic Food Share Benefits (P-EBT). The schools can also benefit from your application for additional funding from the state.  

REMINDER: Meal benefits apply only to the reimbursable meal. The reimbursable meal includes milk as one of the required components and must be priced as a unit. If the student decides to take only milk, this is not a reimbursable meal and will be charged for the milk as an à la carte item. 
 
An updated application form is located within your Infinite Campus Parent Portal under applications/forms, on the district Foodservice website, or may be obtained at your child’s school. In order to save time processing, we encourage you to fill out the online form via the Infinite Campus Parent Portal.
 
Please remember to add money to your meal account if you have not applied for the current year.
 
The 22-23 meal prices are:
Elementary: Breakfast: $0.00 Lunch: $2.70
Middle & High:  Breakfast: $1.25 Lunch: $2.95
