2022-2023 FREE AND REDUCED FEE INFORMATION

Over the past two years, Circle Public Schools has been able to provide free meals to our students due to the USDA waivers associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. 

This federally funded free school meal program is no longer available beginning the 2022-2023 school year. This means all families will need to carry a positive balance in their student's school meal account when school begins in August.

Free & Reduced Meals & Fees Are Still Available, But You Must Apply

WHO CAN GET FREE OR REDUCED PRICE MEALS? 

  • All children in households receiving benefits from Food Assistance (FA), the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) or Temporary Assistance for Families (TAF) are eligible for free meals.

  • Children participating in their school’s Head Start program are eligible for free meals.
