    Important Lunch Announcement: We are excited to announce that all enrolled, on campus students will receive FREE breakfast & lunch until the end of the school year.  If you have qualified for free & reduced in the past or if you are unsure if you qualify please see the information on the Free & Reduced Lunch Application Page. Even though breakfast and lunch are free for everyone, OPI & USDA is still askng us to collect these applications.  

    It not only helps you (when meals aren't free) it may help other areas in the school as well. A couple of examples are:
    • 30 day rollover on free/reduced meals for you for next SY 2022/23.
    • Resources for teachers, classrooms & students.
    • State & federal funding for school budgets.
    • Technology assistance
    • Only one person sees your application, it's very confidential & only takes a moment to complete! If you have questions please call Mrs. Howells @ the elementary office!
    Also, even though meals are free, if your child wants a second milk (9-12 grade) with their hot lunch or if your child brings a cold lunch and wants a milk then your child's lunch account will be charged .50 cents. Unfortunately these are not included in the free meals! If you get a low balance notification this is what it will be for! Thank you for understanding! 

    If you have any questions about the F/R forms please contact Cindy Howells, chowells@mhstigers.org. If you have questions pertaining to breakfast or lunch please email Shawna Longie, slongie@mhstigers.org.
