Dawson-Bryant announces free lunch policy

Published 12:00am Sunday, September 2, 2012

COAL GROVE — Dawson-Bryant Local Schools have announced its 2012-2013 program year policy for free and reduced-price meals for students unable to pay the full price of meals served under the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program. Each school office and the central office has a copy of the policy, which may be reviewed by any interested party.

The Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines will be used for determining eligibility. Children from families whose annual income is at or below the federal guidelines are eligible for free and reduced-price meals.

Application forms are being distributed to all households in a letter to parents or guardians. To apply for free and reduced-price benefits, households should fill out the application and return it to the school. Additional copies are available at the principal’s offices in each school and in the central office.
