Free and Reduced Lunch
New Free and Reduced Lunch Applications must be completed at the beginning of EACH school year.
Please be aware that even if a student does not intend to eat lunch at school, we urge students to apply for free or reduced lunch. If a student qualifies, they will be given a letter verifying qualification. SAVE THE QUALIFYING LETTER to be used for documentation for a variety of fee waivers/fee reductions such as:
- Class Fees
- Athletic Fees
- Summer school scholarships
- Field trip fees
- College application fees
- PSAT fees
- SAT fees
- ACT fees
- AP fees
Students should see their counselor regarding fee waivers. If you choose to do so, you may give a copy of your qualifying letter to your school counselor to be filed in a confidential file in the Counseling Center. Doing this will enable you to be contacted about possible waivers, reductions and opportunities based on free/reduced lunch qualification.
Students that attended any school in the Shoreline School District the previous school year and qualified for Free or Reduced Lunches will have a 30 day "Grace" period at the beginning of the school year. It is very important for families to complete the new applications and turn them in as early as possible in September of each school year so there will not be any disruption of services.
Applications are mailed to all families in August and there are extra copies available all year long in the Shorecrest health office. Please complete an application at any time during the school year as family needs change.
The following is an example of how to fill the form out. The form for you to fill out is located in the Documents section of my web page.
