All Meals Free for 2021-2022 School Year

Families Encouraged to Fill Out Free and Reduced Price Lunch Application

Schalmont encourages families eligible for the Free and Reduced Price School Meals Program to please fill out an application even though school meals are free this year due to the pandemic.
