School Meals

Desert Sky Community School will be participating in the School Breakfast Program and National School
Lunch Program. As part of this program, Desert Sky Community School will offer healthy meals every
school day. Breakfast will cost $2.25 and lunch will cost $3.25. Your child(ren) may qualify for free or
reduced-price meals. Reduced-price meals cost 30 cents for breakfast and 50 cents for lunch.
Qualifications for children to receive free or reduced-price meals include: belonging to a household whose income is at or below the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines, belonging to a household that receives public assistance, or if the child is homeless, migrant, runaway, foster, or participates in a Head Start or Even Start pre-Kindergarten program.
Household size and income criteria are used to determine eligibility for free and reduced-price benefits if
the household does not receive assistance or the children are not in the other categories mentioned
above. Children can get free or reduced-price meals if the household’s gross income falls at or below the
limits on the Federal Income Eligibility Guideline chart. More information here.

Applications are available in the school office and here.
