Dysart Participates in National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs

DYSART SCHOOLS — Dysart Unified School District will be participating in the National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program. As part of this program, Dysart Unified School District will offer healthy meals every school day. Breakfast will cost $1.25; lunch will cost $2.60 for elementary and $2.85 for high school. Your children may qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Reduced-price meals cost $.30 for breakfast and $.40 for lunch. 

As part of this program, breakfast in the classroom is provided at no cost to students at Thompson Ranch, Riverview School, Surprise Elementary, Dysart Elementary and El Mirage Elementary School.  Additionally, lunch meals served at El Mirage Elementary School are provided at no cost to all students.
Qualifications for children to receive free or reduced price meals include: belonging to a household whose income is at or below the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines, belonging to a household that receives public assistance, or if the child is homeless, migrant, runaway, foster, or participates in a Head Start or Even Start pre-Kindergarten program. Free or reduced lunch forms are provided by the school during registration.  If you would like an additional form, please visit https://www.schoolcafe.com/ to complete the online form. 

Household size and income criteria are used to determine eligibility for free and reduced-price benefits if the household does not receive assistance or the children are not in the other categories mentioned above. Children can get free or reduced-price meals if the household’s gross income falls at or below the limits on the Federal Income Eligibility Guideline chart.
