FREE Breakfast and Lunch Available to EVERY Student

Parents of Students in the Maries R-1 School District;

Starting Monday, September 14, all K-12 students living in the Maries R-1 School District will be getting FREE breakfast and lunch through December 31, 2020.  This is available to all of our students as part of a waiver through our SFSP program with the Department of Health and Human Services.

If your child has already deposited money into their account, we will hold that balance in their account until things go back to the way they were before this waiver extension.  If the waiver is not extended after December 31, 2020, we expect to resume charging for student breakfast and lunches.

We encourage families to still fill out the Free/Reduced Lunch Application if their currect financial situation changes as this waiver has only been extended to December 31, 2020. 

We also encourage families to use this time to pay for any charges on their student’s account as no additional charges will be added to their account (for a complete breakfast/lunch) during this time.

A-la-carte items are not included in the “free of charge” meal. Your student’s account will still be charged for these items.

Any and all questions about this service should be forwarded to Mrs. Amy Rowden, Food Service Director.
