Lunch Form: Paper or Online

Posted on Updated on

You have either received a package of forms today or will get them tomorrow—one of those forms is the lunch application. We ask that everyone complete it; the more forms we have turned in, the more likely we will qualify for certain funding. If you would rather complete the form online, that is also an option at If you complete it on-line, just print out the verification and send it in to school.  That will help with tracking if there are any issues.

Things went pretty smoothly for our first day of the school year. We are off to a good start! —Beth Rhine
