    Posted by:

    You should fill out the application by the deadline and check of the box at the bottom saying your child is eligible for free lunch.  If your child ends up not qualifying for free/reduced lunch, we will send you a bill for the bus fee after school starts.  If you would like to pay now, and then you find that your student does qualify, we can refund the bus fee.
