Dear Parent/Guardian,

We are excited to offer a vended lunch program at PHS. Although PHS does not participate in the National School Lunch Program, we will continue to offer qualified households free/reduced lunch for learners. In order for a learner to qualify for free/reduced lunch, a PHS Free Lunch Application form must be filled out. No other applications will be accepted. Families must provide proof of income to participate in the program.

Learners who qualify for the PHS Free Lunch Program, order lunch using the same program as the rest of the school. The learner is limited on the quantity of food he/she may order. Details will be given upon approval. It is the learner’s responsibility to order lunch each month. If a lunch order is not placed for a learner who is participating in the free lunch program by the due date, the Café Coordinator will complete a lunch order for that learner; this order cannot be revised.

Any learner who qualifies for the PHS free/reduced lunch program will be provided a brown bag lunch and drink for field trips which require lunch.

Once received, applications take two business days for approval. It is the parent’s responsibility to provide lunch for their child during this time. A notice of approval will be sent home with the child.

If you have any questions regarding the application or the PHS free/reduced lunch program please feel free to contact me via e-mail.

Sincerely,

Katrina Turner
