  • Dear Parent/Guardian:

    Students need healthy meals to learn. Champlain Valley School District offers healthy meals every school day. In School Year 2023-2024, all students will receive free breakfast and lunch at school. Even though there is no charge for breakfast and lunch, we are asking you to fill out this application for free and reduced-price school meals. If many families fill out and return this form, we will get more money from the federal government for free school meals now and in the future. We will also get more money for other school programs. Filling out this form also helps our community provide free summer meals to all kids, and free meals to kids in childcare. It may also qualify your family for low-cost internet through the Affordable Connectivity Program.

    The packet linked on the left includes an application for free and reduced-price meals and instructions. It also includes common questions and answers to help you. You may also fill out the form online at https://www.myschoolapps.com/

    The information you provide is confidential. We follow strict federal rules to keep your information private.

    If you have other questions or need help, call Stephanie Hurlburt at 802-985-1925 or email at shurlburt@cvsdvt.org.

    Sincerely,

    Gary Marckres, Chief Operations Officer

    Champlain Valley School District
