Free and Reduced Meal Program

The Greenfield Public Schools will take reasonable steps to ensure that persons with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) have meaningful access and an equal opportunity to participate in our schools, educational programs, and activities.  All interpreters, translators and other aids needed to provide language access for students and families will be provided without cost to the person being served.

Language assistance will be provided through use of competent bilingual staff, district language interpreters, and/or contracts or formal arrangements with local organizations providing interpretation or translation services.

Please contact the student services office by calling 413 772-1320 if you would like a translated copy of any district communication to include our student handbook, district policies, or forms.

BREAKFAST

Breakfast is FREE to every Greenfield student, preschool and grades 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7. No forms are needed. Your principal can tell you what time doors open for breakfast.

LUNCH

Greenfield provides a hot lunch meal at every school. We have pre-made salads at the High School and the Middle School. A government program gives us money to pay for children who qualify for lunch money support parent.

We follow national nutrition guidelines and state safety and cleanliness guidelines. We serve over 300,000 meals each year. And we feed children in several locations during the summer.

To receive FREE or REDUCED-price meals, the parent or guardian must fill out an application. There are income guidelines to determine parent assistance with costs. The guidelines compare family income to national income levels. If you need help with these forms, please contact Joan Bitters who works with parents: 413-772-1334

HELP YOUR FAMILY AND OUR SCHOOLS—REGISTER

We want families to have free and reduced meals whenever possible. We know this program helps our families.

The program also helps our schools! We receive grants for reading teachers, library books, math teachers, tutoring, and summer schools. The amount we receive for these grants is based on how many parents sign up for Free and Reduced Lunch. So when parents use our Free and Reduced Lunch program—you are also helping our schools.

If you want more information or need help, do not hesitate to contact us.

Sincerely,

Madison Walker
