Meal Application 2021-Reminder!

Free and Reduced Price Meals are available to families who believe they qualify. The HCS Online free and reduced meal application is available at: HCS Meal Application. A new Free and Reduced Meal Application (1 per household) MUST be submitted every school year by October.) You will be notified by e-mail of your child's status and will be able to print a copy of your detemination letter from a link provided.

The meal status your child was approved for last school year is granted to them at the beginning of this year to allow time for you to submit your new application. Your application must be processed before October 19, 2021.

If an application is not received by that date, your child will be charged at a full paying status until a new application is received and approved.

The information you give will be used to determine or prove your child's eligibility for free or reduced priced meals. This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits, such as free ACT & SAT test waivers so this is especially important for Juniors and Seniors.


Even though lunch is free at school this year, we encourage all parents who believe their student would qualify for free or reduced lunch to complete the application at
