Because of a recent U.S. Department of Agriculture order, all students enrolled in USD 308 who eat breakfast or lunch in district schools will not be charged through Dec. 31.
Families who normally would pay the full rate or the reduce rate for meals will not be charged during this time. All meal charges prior to Sept. 3 will still apply. Additionally, students will have to pay for ala-carte items.
District families still need to fill out the free/reduced application because meals after Dec 31 will be charged according to their student meal status. The free/reduced application also is needed on file for families to qualify for free or reduced-price textbook fees. This application helps our district receive additional state funding needed to provide resources for our students.
