Free meal program offered again
We are pleased to inform you that Granton Area School will again be continuing the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) while participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs for School Year 2020-2021.
What does this mean for you and your children attending the school(s) identified below?
Great news! All enrolled students of Granton Area School are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of the 2020-21 school year. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application. A cost will apply to any extra or ala carte items taken by your child(ren).
*The district will still be requesting Household Income Forms from households with a student participating in the CEP; however, receipt of free breakfast and lunch meals does not depend on returning it. Completing the form is still necessary for other programs like School/District Report Card, Title I, SAGE/AGR funding, Sparsity/High Poverty Aids, E-RATE, WISEdash/ EdFacts reporting, Loan forgiveness for teachers, WI School Day Milk Program and may be used to determine if your household is eligible for these additional benefits.
If we can be of any further assistance, please contact us at 715-238-7292, option 0.
