Free Breakfast and Lunch for All Students

The district is pleased to announce that due to changes in state program requirements, we have now qualified for free meals, both breakfast and lunch, for all students retroactive to October 1st.  The district will be manually adjusting student's accounts who have been charged meals since this date which will take several days to complete.  


While we are excited to share this news, we must also mention that this free meal program is dependent upon the state receiving funding to support this.  The program could be discontinued at any time by the state and at that point, the district would return to the normal meal program.  Based on this, if you have not already completed a free and reduced meal application, we ask that you please do so at this time.  For those who have received notice that their children have qualified for free or reduced meals, in the event where we return to the normal meal program, your child's free or reduced status would automatically be continued for the school year.


If you should have any questions on this new free meal program or need assistance with a free and reduced meal application, please contact Laurie Cossey at (518)585-7400, ext. 1134 or via email at lcossey@ticonderogak12.org.
