We need your completed Free and Reduced Meal Price Applications by October 28th!

posted Oct 21, 2019, 5:31 AM by Roz Walton   [ updated Oct 21, 2019, 5:53 AM ]

Dear Families: we need you to fill out your Free and Reduced Price Meal Applications by October 28!


Have you filled out the Free and Reduced Price Meal Application for this year?  Not sure where to start, or if you may qualify? Let us help you with that! Even if you do not believe you will qualify, it is important that every family fill out the form.


In addition to determining a family’s status for free/reduced lunch, the information on these forms is directly tied to the amount of state subsidy and federal funds received by the Auburn School Department each year.


“What if my school offers free lunch for everyone? Do I still need to fill out the form?”


Yes! We still need every family to complete the form to ensure that we receive all available state and federal dollars for Auburn School Department.


“How do I know if my student will qualify for free or reduced lunch?”


Eligibility for free or reduced price school meal benefits is based on any one of these three things:

 

- your total household income and size in the month the application is filled out, or the month before, or
- your child's individual status as foster, homeless, migrant, or runaway, or
- participation in an assistance program by any member of your household

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your US citizenship or immigration status does not affect your eligibility for free or reduced price benefits.


Ready to complete the form?


You may complete a paper version of the application, which you can find at:


https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EZEurI39SPNiQVd8XSLQF4r1p55t9HqX/view


OR


You can apply online at https://www.nlappscloud.com/Welcome.aspx?api=ff8b02616c2aa0d1afe2c7c32ce15ea6#loaded


If you have this information handy, it will make the application process fast and easy.

- If you participate in SNAPTANF, or FDPIR you will need to know your case number (not your card or account number)
- If you do not participate in any of the above assistance programs, you will need to report your total household income. In that case...

- if anyone in your household has a job, you may need to reference the earnings statement or pay stubs to report your gross income, which is different than the amount you actually receive in your paycheck.
- if anyone receives Social Security or retirement benefits, you may need to gather the benefit statements to report the amount and frequency of the payments.
- you may also need to reference other financial documents for additional sources of income.

Still not sure if you have everything you need? Don't worry! The Help link on the income section of the application contains detailed instructions and explanations about the sources of income you must include, and you can gather additional information then.

“What if I need assistance filling out my form?”

You may contact your school’s main office, the Food Service Department (333-6658, Ext. 2) or the Superintendent’s Office (784-6431) for personalized help in completing the form. Call one of the numbers above for assistance or to schedule a time to come in for help in person.

“Will information on my form be kept confidential?


We will use the information on your form to decide if your child should get free or reduced price meals. We may inform officials connected with other child nutrition, health and education programs of the information on your form to determine benefits for those programs or for funding and/or evaluation purposes.

Parent Information - Safe Stop Bus Tracking App is Available

posted Nov 21, 2017, 12:21 PM by Roz Walton   [ updated Nov 21, 2017, 12:32 PM ]

The school bus GPS tracking software, Safe Stop, is available for parental access and has been active since Monday, November 13th.  A Parent User Guide is available by clicking here.  Access codes were sent home with students and provided to administrators at each school. If you still need an access code, simply contact the principal of the school where your child attends and ask for the code, download the app and start using.

As we venture into the implementation of this new software, please keep in mind that Safe Stop is intended to portray an estimate of where the bus is at that point in time. Parents and viewers should not rely on the bus routing app as an accurate timer to send their student off to the bus stop

The Transportation Policy refers to a 10 minute window on either side of the expected time of arrivalThe GPS software is merely another tool that gives parents an estimated time that the bus will arrive.  This could be especially helpful if a bus is running late for any reason.

There are still a few school buses without GPS and there will be language that indicates that the GPS is not yet available for that bus.  Additional GPS units will be installed upon receipt.
