Parents of free/reduced students;
If you have not filled out a free/reduced form for this year, please do so. Starting October 1st, any student that received free/reduced meals last year and have NOT filled out the form yet for this year, your student will start having to pay full price for meals until a new form is turned in. If you are direct from DHS you do not have to worry about this.
