QUARANTINED OR ISOLATED CHILD(REN) 21-22 INFORMATION
If you have a child at home that has recently been quarantined as a close contact or isolated as a positive COVID-19 case, please contact your home school’s head cook (contact information here) and you can arrange for lunch pickup for the days your child(ren) is/are at home from your home school. (There will be no central pickup location for 21-22)
USDA FREE MEALS THROUGH END OF SCHOOL YEAR
Starting Wednesday, September 1st and running through the last day of school for 2021-22, all children can receive free meals. These meals are only available to Franklin Public School students. Some reminders about this program:
The USDA program will provide one free meal per student per day.
Student allergen information will not be available at the point of distribution of the meals
If you have allergen concerns, please view the online menu and discuss with your child(ren) the allergens in that day's meals.
Students at the high school and middle school can still purchase an additional entree if they choose
Individual milk purchases, separate from a meal, are not free under this program, so the student’s lunch account will be charged.
This institution is an equal opportunity provider
Franklin Public Schools participates in the Free and Reduced Lunch program. Please see below for more information.
If your financial situation changes at anytime throughout a school year you can submit a Free & Reduced Price School Meals Family Application. When students become free or reduced the district office automatically changes the student status in our lunch computer. This way it prevents any cashier from overtly identifying students on this program.
The high school doesn't send out low balance notices but the cashiers will start telling your student their money is running low when it starts to reach around $5.00. It is up to them to dismiss the information if it doesn't apply to them because of their status, again the cashiers do not know who are free or reduced.
