Parents, please check your youngest child’s backpack this week to see if you have been sent an Application for Educational Benefits (also known as the Free/Reduced price meal form). If you applied for educational benefits last school year, you must re-apply by October 22nd 2018 to prevent your child’s benefits from expiring. Please fill out these forms completely including all household members and their income, as well as the primary wage earner’s last four digits of social security number. Only one application is needed per household.
If you receive this form but your student does NOT currently receive benefits, we are asking you to still apply or check “opt out” from applying and return the form to school. Filling out the form not only could help offset your family’s meal expenses, but also supports South St. Paul School District as much of our federal funding is based on the number of students that qualify for Free/Reduced-Price meals, even if they choose to not participate in the school meals program.
You may return the completed form to the Kaposia office or send with your student to give to their classroom teacher.
