Frequently Asked Questions about Free and Reduced Lunch
Parents may print off and complete the application, then it must be mailed or brought to our office (165 Charles St. Painted Post, NY 14870) with an original signature--no faxing.
Parents will receive notification of eligibility after forms have been submitted and reviewed.
In order to comply with state and federal auditing regulations the following policies have been implemented in the district: any charges are the responsibility of the parent and must be repaid. A student who abuses this policy may be denied a meal. If school authorities suspect that a student may be abusing this policy, written notice will be provided by the Building Principal or his/her designee to the parent informing the parent that if the child continues to abuse the policy, the child will lose the privilege of charging meals. Notification of the account balance to the household will be made via phone calls and/or written communication. Please make sure your children's school office has the correct mailing address and phone number on file.
Pre-Paid Food Accounts
The District encourages parents to pre-pay for student meals whenever possible. This prevents children from losing money and speeds up the serving lines during mealtime. Monthly pre-payment amounts are noted at the bottom or on the back of each menu. Checks made out to School Lunch Fund can be sent either to your child's school or to the Food Service Office at the District Administration Building, 165 Charles St, Painted Post, NY, 14870.
