Breakfast and Lunch Program



February 24, 2023

Dear Families,

As we have previously shared, the Breakfast and Lunch Program will be offered free to all families for the remainder of the 2022-2023 school year. One school breakfast and one school lunch will be provided each school day to each student. Milk is available for purchase separately. If your child chooses to bring meals from home, he or she may purchase milk for $0.35 cents.

We also want to remind you that you should complete the Free and Reduced Meal Application even though meals are free for the remainder of this school year.  An approved application may entitle your family to benefits beyond free breakfast and lunch.  Free and reduced meal applications were distributed to all students on the first day of school. You may contact Tammy McGuire in the main office at 860-824-5149, extension 107, if you would like us to send a hard copy of the application home with your child.   Applications are also available on our website under the Parents tab, Food Service:  Applications are available in English and Spanish. for a helpful video on completing the application. The following link provides guidelines to help you determine whether you may qualify for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP):

You can view the School Menus for our monthly breakfast and lunch offerings on the school website: Scroll down until you see School Menus and click that box.  Students will be offered a cold and hot lunch choice daily.  Breakfast and lunch will be served in the cafeteria.

Please feel free to call the school at 860-824-5149 ext. 107, or email  with any questions regarding the food program. 

Thank you so much for participating in our program.
