Important Information Regarding The National School Lunch & School Breakfast Program
How do I get free or reduced-price school meals for my children?
Households must complete the Free and Reduced-Price Meals application form and return it to the school. Only one application must be filled out by a family for children attending the same school. Applications are included in the student’s registration packet. You can also obtain an application at the school or by calling the school office at 713-967-9400. Applications may also be completed via the web by visiting https://onlineapps.yesprep.org/Welcome.aspx
We will use the information on your form to decide if your children should get free or reduced-price meals. We also may inform officials with other child nutrition, health, and education programs of the information on your form to determine benefits provided by those programs or for funding and/or evaluation purposes.
Will the form be verified?
Eligibility may be checked at any time during the school year. School officials may ask you to send written proof that shows that your children should get free or reduced-price school meals.
Must I report changes?
If your children get free or reduced-price meals because of your income, you must tell us if your household size decreases or if your income increases by more than $50 per month, or $600 per year. If your children get free meals because your household gets SNAP or TANF benefits, you must tell us when you no longer get these benefits.
Can I apply for free and reduced-price meals later?
If you are not eligible now but your economic situation changes during the school year (such as a decrease in household income, an increase in household size, unemployment, receive food stamps or TANF), complete another form.
