Monte Cristo's 3rd, 4th and 5th graders will get free school meals for the 2023-2024 SY. Mountain Way students will continue with the Free/Reduce/Full Price model. It is crucial that Free & Reduced Meal Applications get filled out by ALL parents and returned as soon as possible.2. The Middle School and High School will continue on with the Free/Reduce/Full Price model for the 2023-2024 SY. Submit a Free & Reduced-Priced Application as soon as possible.3. Crossroads and Open Door Academy will continue on with free school meals due to the CEP (Community Eligibility Provision) program for the 2023-2024 SY.**CEP allows schools with high number of low-income children to serve free breakfast and lunch to all students without collecting school meal applications. However, families are required to fill out a Family Income Survey.
