Important Update from the Family Connections Center
If you have not signed up for Free and Reduced Meals please apply ASAP. If your work schedule has changed, furlough, or recently lost your job please apply.
Free and Reduced-Price Lunch
Now is an Ideal Time to Sign up for Free and Reduced-Price Lunch (FRL). If you think you might be eligible for free and reduced-price lunch, but haven’t yet signed up, here is the application: https://bsd405.org/services/nutrition-services/free-reduced/
Why the urgency now? There will likely be some government funds made available to families that have FRL status. These funds will be passed on to families to cover the cost of meals they have had to purchase while school has been conducted remotely. In addition, students with FRL status will have their ASB card and other fees waived.
If you aren’t sure if you have signed up for FRL, please call BSD’s Nutrition Services office at 425-456-4507 to confirm.
