During the 2021-22 school year, every school in the District will be participating in The Seamless Summer Option (SSO). This is federally funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and state-administered by the Vermont Agency of Education Child Nutrition Programs. It is part of the suite of School Meals Programs. The requirements are a combination of the School Meals Program and The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). 

BREAKFAST AND LUNCH IS FREE TO ALL STUDENTS IN THE DISTRICT THIS SCHOOL YEAR. 

We are encouraging ALL families to apply with a new application this school year even though meals are free. Many federal funds are distributed to schools based on the number of students eligible for free/reduced price meals. Your community also benefits from the percentage of free and reduced families.
PLEASE APPLY AND RETURN TO YOUR SCHOOLS OFFICE.

A family of 3 earning $40,626. or less is eligible.
If at any time you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
