Complete Your School Meal Form Today! Michigan School Meals provide quality food that fuels good education. The new state investment allows all students to eat one breakfast and one lunch for free each day of the entire school year if they choose.

Even though all meals are free for the 2023-24 school year, there are other education benefits provided to the district, individual school building, or household that require an individual student benefit (free, reduced, paid) to be determined each year.

We’re asking every family to complete and submit either the School Meal Application or Education Benefits Form (formerly the Household Information Report.) The information collected is used to provide additional services and benefits beyond school meals, like resources for classrooms, teachers, and children, guidance and college counselors, and health and wellness services. Summer EBT benefits are also available for eligible households. Talk to your school about which form you need.

Report Cards will be available: Monday, November 6th, 2023, families can view their children's report card in the web version of the PowerSchool Public Portal. In addition to grades and report cards, the Parent Portal allows you to see your student’s attendance and scheduling information. If you need assistance with accessing the Parent Portal, please reach out to your school.
