While Ridgemont Local Schools have made the meals they’ve given their children free of charge, the district reminds its parents to complete free-and-reduced meal applications.
Three reasons have been given as to why completing these forms is important:
- Families who qualify for free meals will have their school fees waived for 2021.
- Potential legislation would give qualifying families extra money for food on an EBT card.
- Percentages of families under the free/reduced thresholds influence the district’s funding.
