SCHOOL YEAR 2016-17
PROVISION II LETTER TO HOUSEHOLDS
NATIONAL SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM/SCHOOL BREAKFAST PROGRAM

August 15, 2016

Dear Parent/Guardian:

We are pleased to inform you that children in the Maxwell Municipal Schools will be offered meals free of charge, regardless of income, through the 2016-17 School Year unless otherwise notified.

All meals served must meet regulations established by the United Stated Department of Agriculture (USDA).  However, if a child has been determined by a doctor to be disabled and the disability would prevent the child from eating the regular school meal, this school will make any substitutions prescribed by the doctor.  If a substitution is needed, there will be no extra charge for the meal.  If you believe your child needs substitutions because of a disability, please call us for further information.

Sincerely,

Yolanda Trujillo
Administrative Asst.
