You can complete the form by accessing the online meal application quick link above or by visiting your child’s school to obtain a paper copy. Only complete one application per family. The information you provide will be used to determine or prove your child’s eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits.

Procedures to be followed during these drills are updated on a regular basis to reflect "best practice" procedures as defined by first response agencies to ensure that students and staff are aware of the most effective and safest emergency responses.

Please see the attached flyer which contains information that will assist you before, during, and in the event of an emergency.
