SCHOOL YEAR 2021-22 MEALS
The United States Department of Agriculture is allowing schools to provide meals for the 2021-22 school year through a provision of the National School Lunch Program called the Seamless Summer Option (SSO). A waiver has been issued in order to support access to nutritious meals while minimizing potential exposure to COVD-19. Our school has chosen to use this waiver and operate the SSO which enables us to provide meals free of charge for all students. However, there will be a rate of $1.55 charged to PRHS student accounts for seconds (regardless of lunch status).
Application for Educational Benefits Completed application = FREE Activity Ticket for all K-12 students in the household (only 1 form per household is required).
No application is required to receive this free meal benefit. However, your child(ren) may qualify additional benefits such as reduced fees or the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) which is a federal temporary emergency nutrition benefit that is loaded onto electronic cards for families to purchase food. At public schools, your application also helps the school qualify for education funds and discounts.
To Apply: complete the Application for Educational Benefits form which is part of the online registration process for returning K-12 students. If you've already completed the online registration process you can access the application using the links below:
