KPEA/KPESA Guide to Student Nutrition Forms
We have seen a flurry of posts on Facebook, and received emails from our own students' schools, saying that students might be denied access to lunch for two main reasons:
- the federal free lunch program we had last year has ended
- parents have not put money on their students' accounts and/or filled out free and reduced lunch paperwork
We want to make sure students eat too. To that end, we've put together this succinct guide to get your child set up if you haven't already.
This district's page with this info is here: https://kpbsd.org/free-or-reduced-meals-streamlined-application-is-now-available/
Your Kids are Our Students
Our student nutrition workers do not want to deny lunches to students. We know how hard it is for them to learn on an empty stomach, and we want to reduce barriers to getting food to them when they need it. You can reach out to your school's secretary for more help if you need it as well.
We are your student's nutrition workers, nurses, counselors, and teachers - and every other certified and support employee in the district - and we want to help!
