FREE MEALS FOR ALL STUDENTS
The USDA has approved FREE Breakfast and Lunch for all students through 12/31/2020 or until funding is depleted. Your students enrolled in the Stanton Community School District will not be charged for any regular school meals starting September 14th 2020.
How does this affect your student’s school lunch status?
If your student is in full pay or reduced lunch status, they will be Temporarily not charged for their meal. No meal charges will be made to the students account through 12/31/2020 or until the district is notified by the USDA and State Authorities that the funding is depleted. No one really knows when this funding may run out, so like everything related to COVID, it will be a fluid process and we will notify families as soon as possible of any changes. At that point the student’s account will return to their original lunch status and charged accordingly. Please remember to pay any negative charges on your student’s account that may have accrued prior to 09/14/2020. All additional money placed in the meal account will carry over until regular meal prices resume. Ala carte options will be available and charged to their meal account (extra lunch milk is also available at a charge). Please add funds into the account to cover extra lunch milk and ala carte charges. You can add funds to your student account online or send money to your student’s school to be deposited.
How does this affect applying for free and reduced lunches?
We highly encourage Parent/Guardians to please fill out the Iowa Eligibility Meal Application to apply for free and reduced status so when we return to charging you, you will still receive the appropriate meal benefits.
If you have any questions, please contact the district office at 712-829-2162.
