An updated meal application must be filled out every school year. For those that don't return an updated form at the beginning of the year, your child's meal status will change to denied 30 days after the start of school. Meal assistance applications can be submitted anytime throughout the school year. Only 1 application needed per household.
All applications are processed the first week of school and notification are mailed to households. If you are unsure if your child qualified please contact Judy Baumann 440-965-5821 ext 1011.
Direct Certification is run several times throughout the year. Any student qualifying for free meals through Direct Certification (a list received from the State) will receive a notification letter. This letter, in bold letters at the top will read "NOTIFICATION FOR FREE MEALS". Please take time to read this letter as it contains important information. If you receive this letter at the start of the school year, you DO NOT need to fill out a meal application.
School fees are not automatically waived if your child qualifies for free meals. YOU MUST return the bottom portion of the direct cert letter or mark the appropriate box on the meal application.
