School lunch assistance offered at St. Paul Lutheran School

The St. Paul Lutheran School, Bonduel, has announced its policy for children unable to pay the full price of meals served under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program, or milk for split-session students served under the Special Milk Program. Each school office and the central office has a copy of the policy, which may be reviewed by any interested party. Children in families whose annual income is at or below the designated levels are eligible for free and reduced price meals and/or free milk.

Application forms are being sent home with a notice to parents or guardians. To apply for free or reduced price meals or free milk, households must fill out the applications and return them to the school (unless notified at the start of the school year that children are eligible through direct certification). Additional copies are available at the office in each school. The information provided on the application will be used to determine eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school year. Applications may be submitted at any time during the year.

Under the provisions of the free and reduced price meal and free milk policy, all applications will be evaluated and ruled eligible or ineligible. If a parent is dissatisfied with the ruling, he or she may discuss the decision informally or request a formal appeal, orally or in writing, by contacting: Rev. Timothy Shoup, 240 E. Green Bay St., Bonduel, 715-758-8559.
