Notice to Parents from Federal Court about the Opportunity to Object to the Release of Educational Data
2014/15 School Year
Children need healthy meals to learn. The Columbia Local School District offers healthy meals every school day. Breakfast costs $1.00 for grades K-4, and $1.50 for grades 5-12. Lunch costs $3.50 for grades K-12. Your children may qualify for free meals or for reduced price meals. Reduced price is $0.30 for breakfast and $0.40 for lunch.
All meals served must meet nutrition standards established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. If a child has been determined by a doctor to be disabled and the disability would prevent the child from eating the regular school meal, this school will make any substitutions prescribed by the doctor. If a substitution is needed, there will be no extra charge for the meal. If you believe your child needs substitutions because of a disability, please contact your child’s school office for further information.
All children in households receiving benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or Ohio Works First (OWF) benefits can get free meals regardless of your income. Also, your children can get free meals if your household’s gross income is within the free limits on the Federal Income Guidelines.
Foster children that are under the legal responsibility of a foster care agency or court are eligible for free meals. Any foster child in the household is eligible for free meals regardless of income.
Children who meet the definition of homeless, runaway, or migrant qualify for free meals. If you have not been told your children will get free meals, please call or email Liz Wenzel, Homeless Liaison, at 440/236-1236, email@example.com to see if they qualify.
Children can get low cost meals if your household income is within the reduced price limits on the Federal Eligibility Income Chart.
