Free & Reduced Price Meals
As you may already be aware, breakfast and lunch are now FREE for BVSD students. Students will receive a full breakfast, along with one entree (with unlimited salad/fruit to accompany the entree) for free each day next year. Even though lunch is now free, it is still very important that families complete the free and reduced meal application, as it waives and reduces fees (including athletics/activities and school technology fees) district-wide for families, can impact transportation for some families, and impacts important funding for individual schools. It also qualifies families for a 50% reduction in Lifelong Learning tuition, and waived tuition for BVSD Online classes (excluding the $50 registration fee). Child Care families will continue to apply for financial assistance through the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP).
If you are unsure whether you qualify for Free and Reduced please see the eligibility chart on the right side of this page.
