SCHOOL YEAR 2023-2024
PROVISION 2 NON BASE YEAR
The Cedar Ridge School District is pleased to announce the district’s policy for providing meals at NO CHARGE for all students participating in the School Breakfast Program or National School Lunch Program, regardless of eligibility category, during the 2023 – 2024 school term unless otherwise notified. This is made possible through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Special Assistance Certification and Reimbursement Provision 2 Alternative. Federal reimbursement for meals is based on applications on file for the 2022-2023 Base Year for the district. These applications are filed and maintained at the central Office to ensure the strict confidentiality of each document and must remain safely filed for the entirety of the school district’s Provision 2 status. The information on the applications will be made available only to State and Federal officials for review. If students wish to purchase items a la carte, they will need to have money for those purchases. All adults, e.g., visitors, teachers, support staff members, and administrators of the district must assume the full cost of the meal which is $2.70 for Breakfast and $4.00 for Lunch.
