Letters will be mailed at the end of July for all applicants who were pre-approved by the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) for free meals. School age student(s) listed on this letter are not required to have an application on file. If a student's name(s) from your household is missing on this letter, please call Dawn at 459-3568; per DPI we can automatically approve them for free meals because the approval is based per household. Lunch applications will not be needed for these circumstances. All letters sent from this office notifying your household of free and reduced status should be kept, do not throw away. These letters can be used as proof for discounts on programs/testing offered within the Sheboygan Area School District and Recreation Department. If you have any further questions, please call Dawn Schutte, Secretary at 459-3568.

 

Food stamp benefits have been cut to many of our Sheboygan Area School District families due to government cut-backs.  The Sheboygan Area School District School Nutrition Department is here to help our families in need. 

 Please apply for free or reduced meals to help your household supplement your meals for your children.  The lunch program includes one hot lunch daily which is: entrée, fruit, vegetables & milk at all schools.  The free/reduced program also includes breakfast program Check with your school if breakfast is being served.  Parents will receive a letter notifying you of the status you have been approved for.  The lunch application information is confidential and will not be shared with other programs without your approval.

 Lunch applications are located at all schools, our website at www.sheboygan.k12.wi.us  the School Nutrition icon, or you can call the School Nutrition office at 920-459-3568. If your family is not approved for free due to the household income, you could be approved for reduced priced meals which would cost 40¢ daily for lunch or 30¢ for breakfast (where available).  If you send a cold lunch with your child, the cost of milk is 40¢. The Sheboygan Area School District does not offer a free/reduced priced milk program.
