The Montessori Regional Charter School is pleased to announce that The Nutrition Group will be providing meals for our students again this school year.

ELIGIBILITY APPLICATION FOR FREE OR REDUCED MEALS

  • All households are categorized as:  PAID, FREE or REDUCED
  • Some PAID households will not apply for FREE or REDUCED status since they know their household income exceeds the qualifying limits.  This information can be found on the 2015-2016 household letter.
    • INCOMING KINDERGARTEN households are considered on PAID status until their FREE or REDUCED application is approved or denied since there is no previous history.
    • Returning student households that were on PAID status at the end of last school year will be on PAID status until they receive a determination that they qualify for FREE or REDUCED meals.
  • PAID STATUS:  In order to receive school lunches, households that begin the school year on PAID status must set up and load money on an account at www.parentonline.net as soon as possible or should plan on packing lunches.

    • You will need your student ID# to set up a payment account.  Student ID#s will be distributed during Kindergarten orientation or for older grades it will be in your student packets at the Back to School social.
    • If you are on PAID status and have not put money on your account, if you do not send a packed lunch with your child, he/she will receive a cheese sandwich and a memo will be sent home to remind you to load money on your payment account.
    • Households that do not apply for FREE or REDUCED status should plan on maintaining a positive balance in a payment account during the entire school year or packing lunches.
    • Households that do apply for FREE or REDUCED status will receive a letter of determination.
  • FREE & REDUCED Applications must be completed online at www.paschoolmeals.com before the grace period ends on October 5th, 2015.
    • Direct Certification – Households currently receiving SNAP benefits will be directly certified by the state and will receive a letter from the school stating that you are already on FREE status.  YOU DO NOT HAVE TO COMPLETE AN APPLICATION.
    • Households who have not applied by the time the grace period ends, will revert to PAID status.  You will need to set up and load money on an account on www.parentonline.net or you should plan on packing lunches.  (See PAID STATUS section above)
    • Households that do apply will receive a letter of determination from the school.  If your household does not qualify for FREE and you have to pay full price or you have been determined REDUCED pay status, you must set up and load money on an account on www.parentonline.net or should plan on packing lunches.
