ALL K-12 Students Will Receive FREE Breakfast AND LUNCH

Oakridge Public Schools will be participating in a new option available to schools as part of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the School Year 2018-2019. The GREAT NEWS is that ALL students are eligible to receive FREE breakfast AND lunch each day of the upcoming school year. Families will no longer need to complete a Free/Reduced Price Meal Application in order to receive free school meals. However, we are asking that you fill out and sign the confidential Household Information Survey. (For assistance in completing this form: Household Information Instructions) This survey is needed for administrative purposes, not to determine eligibility. It allows our school to benefit from various State and Federal supplemental programs like Title I A, At Risk (31a), Title II A, E- Rate, etc. This survey is critical in determining the amount of money the school receives from a variety of supplemental programs. We are asking that you please complete and submit it as soon as possible. Information will be included in your enrollment packet and will also be available at all front offices. Without your assistance, the school cannot maximize utilization of available State and Federal funds. For further assistance, please contact the Food Service Department at 231-788-7525 or 231-788-7321 or mcorbit@oakridgeschools.org or klong@oakridgeschools.org.
