If your family needs help with costs associated with school, apply for assistance as soon as possible. The application for Free & Reduced Lunch isn’t just for food. If your family qualifies for free or reduced price meals, they may be eligible for decreased fees to participate in other school programs such as ASB membership and AP exams. Complete Part 5 of the application (Sharing Information) to give permission to Nutrition Services to share school meal eligibility information with other school programs. https://bsd405.org/services/nutrition-services/free-reduced/
If your family applies but doesn’t qualify for assistance through the district, scholarships are often available through school and PTSA funds. However, families must apply for help at the district level.
FAMILIES MUST RE-APPLY EVERY SCHOOL YEAR.
