Oakridge Public Schools will continue our participation in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program option called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the School Year 2021-2022. The GREAT NEWS is that ALL students are eligible to receive FREE breakfast AND lunch each day of the upcoming school year, for the second continuous 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 Informational ReportThe completion of this form by our parents and guardians is essential in determining the continuation of the free breakfast and lunch program. This report is needed for administrative purposes, not to determine individual 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 the 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 nlazo@oakridgeschools.org.
