Meal Fee Changes for the 2022-2023 School Year

Aug. 16, 2022


Meals are no longer free in the 2022-2023 school year, and meal charges will resume on the first day of school on Monday, Aug. 22. 


When the Coronavirus pandemic hit, the federal government funded a program that allowed all students — even those who were not previously eligible — to receive free meals at school. However, they discontinued this program. 


Below is the pricing for District meals this year: 


  • Breakfast K-12: $1.95

  • Elementary Lunch K-5: $3.00

  • Secondary Lunch 6-15: $3.10

  • Reduced Price Breakfast: $0.30 

  • Reduced Price Lunch: $0.40


If your child is planning to purchase meals this school year, check meal and fee balances and add funds to your child(ren)’s meal account in the SIS K12 Portal.


Need assistance paying for meals? Those who qualify can receive free and reduced-price meals this year. Applications for free & reduced-price meals are available here or at any school office. 


In an effort to assist families as we transition back to paid meals, the USDA has increased the income guidelines used to determine eligibility. Click here to see the income guidelines.
