School meals are no longer free
Dear WSD3 Families,
The Federal School Meal Waivers are set to expire June 30, 2022. Widefield School District 3 (WSD3) will be going back to the National School Lunch and Breakfast programs for the 2022-2023 school year.
This means, all school meals are no longer free for all students. Families need to apply for free school meals once again.
Starting July 1, 2022, meal applications for free or reduced meals will be available for the school year. Paper applications will also be available in the schools when staff return for the school year. A new application must be filled out every school year.
New application benefits will be in effect as soon as the application is processed.
One application per family is required.
You do not need to fill out an application per student.
Please list all household members on the application including infants and children that are not in school, and all adults whether or not they receive income.
Make sure all information is filled out and that you have signed and dated the application.
Your application cannot be processed if it is not filled out correctly. If you have a valid email address, please include that on the application.
We will also be offering a la carte items in our junior high and high schools. Elementary students will be able to purchase extra milk. If your child would like to purchase extra items, please ensure they have adequate funds on their account for those purchases.
Listed below are the meal prices for the 2022-2023 school year:
BREAKFAST FULL PRICE LUNCH FULL PRICE
Elementary $1.55 Elementary $2.80
Junior High $1.65 Junior High $2.90
High School $1.80 High School $3.00
Adult $2.50 Adult $4.25
Milk $ .75 Milk $ .75
If you qualify for Reduced Price Meals, those meals are FREE for all grades.
Menus are available on our website, wsd3ns.com, as well as at the link for online payments, meal applications, and other resources. If your child has special dietary needs, have the Medical Statement Form filled out by your physician. You can obtain a form from our website, your school nurse, or by contacting the Nutrition Services Office.
