Child Nutrition Program
Requirement for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals
Back to School and Back to Normal in the Cafeteria
Arlington — During the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress authorized spending that allowed schools to serve free meals for all students. Those funds are not authorized to continue for the 2022-2023 school year. As a result, Premier High School of Arlington must return to charging for Breakfast meals and offering free and reduced-price meals based on student eligibility. Starting on August 15, 2022 will begin distributing letters and applications to the households of the children in the district about eligibility benefits. Families are encouraged to complete the Application for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals online through the Skyward Family access, or complete a form and return to any Premier High School office.
