ACTION REQUIRED: Lunch/Family Income Inquiry Form

School lunch is free this year, but ALL families are required to fill out the Lunch/Family Income Inquiry Forms . The information provided could help 276 receive additional funding.  We encourage families to complete the form online. Hard copies of this form will be sent home with your child in September and will also be available in the 276 main office.

If you do not wish to provide your household income information to the DOE, all families must still complete the form but may click the "I do not wish to provide my household information" box on the Application Instruction page online.

Please respond to this email if you need your student's OSIS/Student ID # (it is also available on their report cards.)  New student #s will not be available until early September.

Giving has never been easier! Small monthly payments add up to make a huge difference. Most families give between $50-$100 each month. If every family signed up for recurring payments, we would be able to fund all of our programs.

Thank you to everyone who has already given this year.
