BREAKFAST/LUNCH CHANGE FOR 2022-2023
Irene-Wakonda School District Families:
The purpose of this message is to help District families plan for the 2022-2023 school year regarding school lunch/breakfast. Congress did not extend the funding for universal free meals, nor did Congress provide extra funding for School Nutrition Programs for the 2022-2023 school year. As a result, most students will not have free or reduced-price benefits from this year to carry them into the first 30-days of 2022-2023. Students will be paying full price for meals unless the household submits a free and reduced-price meal application that the school approves for the 2022-2023 school year.
As the Irene-Wakonda School District receives additional guidance from the Division of Child and Adult Nutrition Services, we will share relevant information and paperwork for families looking to complete a free and reduced-price meal application for 2022-2023 (e.g., expect updated forms in August).
Thank you,Irene-Wakonda School District
