Free and Reduced Lunch Applications

We are aware that many families may be experiencing a reduction or loss of income due to the closures affecting all of us.  Please know that we can continue to accept applications for free and reduced price meals during the school closure.  You can apply on-line at: www.lunchapp.com.   We realize that breakfast and lunch at school aren't available but there are many more benefits that are available for families based on free and /or reduced meals status.  The district's summer lunch program is also based on free and reduced meal applications.  I encourage you to apply, if your family situation has changed or you did not want to apply in the past.   I will try to process all applications within 48 hours.  Also, your children status will be good for the first 30 days of the 2020-21 school year.  

Pandemic EBT Program

Families with children who received free or reduced-cost lunches at school qualify for new program.  

The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer Program (P-EBT) provides temporary funding to address emergency food needs for families affected by the pandemic.

P-EBT food assistance benefits will go to Michigan families with students ages 5-18 that are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. This includes families currently receiving Food Assistance Program benefits, as well as those not currently enrolled in the program.

Chromebook Handout Round 2

Those having difficulty connecting to the WiFi at home...

After some investigating it has been found that a setting for the chromebooks that were distributed is restricting the device from connecting to other wireless networks. We apologize for this inconvenience. We are learning too as these devices have never been out of the building previously.

Unfortunately, this means the Chromebook will need to reconnect at the school for this change / update to apply. Once this is done, it will allow them to connect to wireless at home. Again we apologize for this inconvenience.

Step 1- Bring device back to school parking lot.
Step 2- Student logs into device connecting to the school WiFi. This will update the device settings.
Step 3- The Chromebook can now be connected to home Wi-Fi.

Aquellos que tienen dificultades para conectarse a WiFi en casa ...

Después de investigar un poco, se descubrió que una configuración para los Chromebooks que se distribuyeron está restringiendo la conexión del dispositivo a otras redes inalámbricas. Pedimos disculpas por este inconveniente. También estamos aprendiendo ya que estos dispositivos nunca antes habían estado fuera del edificio. Desafortunadamente, esto significa que el Chromebook deberá volver a conectarse en la escuela para que se aplique este cambio / actualización. Una vez hecho esto, les permitirá conectarse a la red inalámbrica en casa. Nuevamente nos disculpamos por este inconveniente.

Paso 1- Traiga el dispositivo de regreso al estacionamiento de la escuela.

Paso 2- El estudiante inicia sesión en el dispositivo que se conecta al WiFi de la escuela. Esto actualizará la configuración del dispositivo.

Paso 3- La Chromebook ahora se puede conectar a la red Wi-Fi doméstica.
