GSES Lunch

The federal government allowed schools to offer free meals to all students during the pandemic, but Congress did not extend this benefit for this school year.  Families that are eligible for free and reduced price meals must apply to receive them, and all other students must pay full price ($3.00) for their lunches and Breakfast will be $1.75.

The online application process for free and reduced price meals is now live and can be accessed on our webpage.

The family portal to add money to your child's account is experiencing some technical difficulties.  The software company is working on the solution to loading money to your child's account. You are welcome to send cash or check with your child to school for their lunch account.
