Students in the Spokane Public Schools District need to turn in their free or reduced-price meal applications by Monday. Beginning Tuesday, students who were on the meal program during the 2010-’11 school year, but have not turned in their applications will be changed to a paid meal status.
Families in the district that have not reapplied for the meal program have been notified of the deadline.
To participate in the free or reduced-price meal program, a new application is required every school year; only one application is needed per family; families may apply at any time during the school year and once the family is qualified, the application is good for the full school year; and any family member on Direct DSHS Certification (Basic Food) qualifies all students in that family.
