The North Mason School District participates in the National School Breakfast & Lunch Program. You may apply for Free/Reduced meals at any time during the school year. Applications are available online (see below), in your school office, the Food Service office, and in you school’s Food Service kitchen. Most students will also have an application sent/mailed home to them the first week of school. It is very important to complete the Free/Reduced Application and Family Income Survey because this helps determine funding for other programs in your school(s).
For Middle & High School students only. Students attending Belfair Elementary and Sand Hill Elementary are eligible to receive breakfast and lunch at no charge throughout the 2017-18 school year regardless of family or household income.
- Fill out the application as completely as possible (one application per household) including: All students’ full names w/schools they attend, names of all members of the household with their incomes, signature of an adult household member, social security number of signer.
- Anytime during the school year that your income changes, you may complete and submit a new Free/Reduced Application.
- If your student receives Basic Food (food stamps) or TANF you must include the case number on the application (no SSN# is needed).
- If your student is a foster child, please submit an application with only his/her name in the foster child section. No other children may be on their application.
Have your student drop off the application in your school kitchen with the Food Service staff. We have 10 business days to process the application (it usually takes 24-48 hours).
You are responsible for all charges until your application is approved. A letter will be mailed home to notify you of the application results. If you do not receive a letter within 3 days of submitting the application please contact the Food Service office.
Once you have been approved, in order to receive the free/reduced rate, your student must choose a complete meal. That means 3 out of the 4 food groups. In the appropriate amounts at breakfast and 3 out of 5 food groups in the appropriate amounts at lunch.
Anything else will be considered Ala Carte and your student will be charged accordingly.
A new application must be submitted each year (It cannot be submitted on last years form). Your child’s status from the prior year will roll over to the next school year for the first 30 school days. After that a new application must be on file. All charges accrued between when the old application expires and the new one is approved, are the parent/guardians responsibility to pay back.
