School Meals

Academy of Math and Science Avondale is offering healthy meals to all students at NO COST every school day in School Year 2023-2024.  Your student(s) will receive free breakfasts and lunches regardless of your household’s income.  Free breakfasts are available in the cafeteria from 7:30 AM -7:55 AM. If your student is participating in after-school activities, snacks are provided at no cost too.
 
NO APPLICATION for Free and Reduced-Price School is required if you completed one already during this school year.   
 
However, if your student is new or you did not complete an application before 4/1, it is essential that you complete an ESEA (Title 1) Income Eligibility form because your school’s:
 
  • Federal and state educational funding and lower internet charges are based on data learned from this form
  • Federal funding for school meals is based on data from the form.
  • An ESEA (Title 1) Income Eligibility form is available and should be returned to your school’s office manager or registrar.

The Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act requires the information requested in order to verify your children’s eligibility for free or reduced-price meals.
