Note for Parents of Children with Free or Reduced Lunch Benefits Expiring 9/26/2018

Dear Parent or Guardian:

If you received a text message and/or email from CCSD93 regarding your child’s free or reduced lunch benefits expiring, it means that your child's current eligibility status for free meals or reduced-price meals is based on last school year’s application for meal/milk benefits.  Meal/milk benefits will end when the required carryover period ends on September 26, 2018

Please note that after September 26, 2018, we are unable to provide further meal/milk benefits unless you complete a Household Eligibility Application with the required information for the current school year. PLEASE NOTE: If you received FDC benefits last year and are part of the carry-over, you may have received an approval letter in error in the month of July.  By receiving this message, we are notifying you that you will need to reapply, as we do not have updated information from the State for your child.  

FOR IMMEDIATE REVIEW PLEASE COMPLETE THE APPLICATION ONLINE AT:

https://www.freereducedlunch.com/ccsd93.  If you choose not to apply online, you may apply using the Household Eligibility Application available at your child's school. Please allow 10 days for the review of the paper application.

You may reapply at any time during the school year if you believe a change in circumstances may make you eligible (such as a decrease in household income, an increase in household members, or a household wage earner becomes unemployed).  

If you do not agree with the decision, or would like further clarification, please contact the district office at the contact information below.
