Dear D11 Families,
Why aren't school meals free this year?
- Over the last two years, the federal government has provided schools with waivers providing meals at no cost to students.
- Those waivers will expire after the 2021-22 school year.
- Because Congress did not include an extension of the waivers, District 11 will resume our traditional practice of charging for meals in the 2022-23 school year.
- This is a standard, normal procedure that keeps school districts in compliance with federal and state regulations.
- District 11 Food and Nutrition Services is a self-funded enterprise within the school district and has to cover the costs of operating a school nutrition program.

I don't qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Do I need to do anything?
- If you do not believe that you qualify for free or reduced-price meals, please make sure that there is money in your student's account. You can add money to their account at myschoolbucks.com.
