VIRTUAL FAMILIES - PLEASE COMPLETE WEEKLY FOOD FORM
If you have a virtual student and you are planning on ordering a lunch during the upcoming week, please complete this meal interest survey indicating your lunch preferences by Tuesday at 11:59pm. Filling this out a week ahead helps our food services team to better plan for the upcoming weeks and improve the lunch experience for your child. You can view the online menu here. The pick-up time for virtual student meals remains 8:30 to 9:00 Monday thru Friday at FPMS.
WHAT TO DO IF QUARANTINED OR ISOLATED CHILD(REN) AT HOME?
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.
USDA FREE MEALS THROUGH END OF SCHOOL YEAR
Starting this Monday, September 14 and running through the last day of school, all children can receive free meals. Per the USDA, Franklin Public Schools is now part of the program to make lunch meals available at no cost to all children age 18 and younger regardless of free/reduced lunch status. 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.
