FREE MEALS FOR ALL STUDENTS AT SELKIRK ELEMENTARY
We are very excited that Selkirk Elementary School qualified for a new National School Lunch and School Breakfast program called Community Eligibility Provision for school year 2014-15. This is a pilot program for our school, but there is the potential that it may continue for the next three years.
This is great news for our students! All Preschool through 5th grade enrolled students are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school each day at no charge to parents! No further action is required of families. Your child will be able to participate without having to pay a fee or submit a free and reduced-price meal application. There will still be a charge for milk for cold lunch ($0.35); however, we work hard to create healthy meal options for students, so please encourage your child to try a hot lunch or breakfast meal at school. Our menus are available online at our website: www.selkirk.k12.wa.us, in school offices, and are sent home at the beginning of each month with students.
Other schools in the Selkirk School District are not part of this program and normal meal charges and process for applying for Free or Reduced Meal benefits apply, even if you have one student attending Selkirk Elementary.
