This years applications will be mailed out to the households on Monday, August 15th, 2016. We encourage all families to apply. Completed applications may be mailed/dropped off at the Service Center or your students schools. We cannot accept applications filled out in pencil. We will notify you if your application is approved/denied by mail. If any child you are applying for is homeless, migrant, or a runaway, check the appropriate box and call your school.
