Everyone is welcome to fill out the application. Please be sure to fill out both pages. Please contact Tonia Healy at 712-944-5183 for any questions. If you qualify, your lunch and fees could be reduced or free. 

In addition, many state and federal funding sources are based off the number of free and reduced students. This provides either a greater discount or more funding for the school for phone service, internet access, technology, etc.

 Students who qualify for free and reduced priced meals may take one complete breakfast and one complete lunch per day.  Please note, all extra servings and A la carte items are full priced.

Mission Statement  of the Nutrition Department-Ensuring the nutritional and health needs of every student to help maximize each one's ability to learn.

Our menus are designed to offer nutritional meal choices, while following nutritional guidelines set by the USDA. School meals are planned to include the following required five components; meat/meat alternate, grains, fruits, vegetables, and milk. All students must take 3 of the 5 components offered. One (1) component must be a fruit or vegetable to qualify as a meal. Ala Carte items are available for 5th & 6th Grade and all Middle and High School Students.  If your family qualifies for free or reduced meals, and you bring a sack lunch milk is not free, you will pay the full price for it. Menus may need to be changed due to the availability of the products at any given time. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
