We would like to share information with you regarding meal costs for the 2022-23 school year. Unfortunately, the government-funded free meal program for all students that was established during the COVID-19 pandemic will come to an end at the conclusion of the 2021-22 school year. This means that there will now be a cost associated with school meals for all families who do not meet the Free and Reduced Meal requirements when school begins in August.
We understand this change may cause concern; however, there are important steps you can take today to make sure your student(s) receives the meals they need next year.
Complete an application for Free & Reduced Meals. If your student qualifies for free or reduced meals, they can still receive them next year, but you must take action to make it happen. Even if you completed the 2021-2022 application, you would still need to complete the 2022-2023 application as well. If you need assistance completing this form, please contact the school office at 319-868-7701.
Families that do not qualify for free or reduced meals can begin depositing money into their student’s meal account by logging into Payschools to prepare for the cost of school lunches next year. Information on meal prices for the 2022-2023 school year can be found at https://mscsd.org/
Thank you for your attention to this upcoming change. We remain dedicated to ensuring that all students have access to school meals, and we will provide the necessary assistance to make that possible.
