We are pleased to inform you that New Hartford Public Schools continues to participate in the National School Lunch Program. This program provides financial assistance to those who qualify. Please fill out the Free and Reduced Lunch application even if you believe that you will not qualify for benefits. You are still required to send in a new application even if your child is currently receiving Free & Reduced Lunch benefits. This information will remain confidential.
Those who complete an application will be notified and benefits will begin once the application has been completed. Based on qualifications, a student’s lunch will either be free, reduced ($.40) or full price ($2.75).
The Special Milk Program for Pre-K and Kindergarten allows children to buy milk ($.50) or get milk for free if they qualify. Pre-K and Kindergarten Special Milk application.
