The USDA has made free breakfast and lunch to all students grades K-12 regardless of income levels. The program runs through December 31, 2020. Please see the flyer for more information here.
It is still important for parents to fill out free and reduced lunch forms if a family qualifies. Allen East receives funding from the federal government based on the number of students who qualify for free and reduced lunches. Programs such as the Title I reading program is funded solely by federal grant money tied to our free and reduced numbers. Also, students who qualify for free lunches have most of their fees waived for the academic year. Even though all children are now receiving free meals, it is vital that Allen East receives the free and reduced forms. The forms can be found and filled-out on our website https://www.ae.k12.oh.us under the quick link EMERGENCY MEDICAL & FREE/REDUCED FORMS.
