The web feature LunchApp.com allows parents to fill out an application for Free & Reduced Meal Benefits online. According to the Director of Food Service, Randy Kincaid, “LunchApp.com offers a higher level of confidentiality, is faster, more accurate, and easy to use.” If you prefer to use this site, you will no longer need to send in the paper application and, in most cases, your application will be reviewed and a determination made within one business day.

Please remember that a Free & Reduced Meal Application must be filled out every new school year by September 30th. There is one application form for Free-and-Reduced priced meals for the entire household. If you are approved for Free-or-Reduced priced meals, you are entitled to one breakfast and one lunch daily.

KHPS - Motivated Students Make a Difference

One of my favorite things to teach in science class is a seventh-grade unit called Human Impact. The unit focuses on all the ways we humans affect the world around us just by doing the things we do every day. Last year after the unit was completed, I had several students who wanted to make a difference in the environment. They asked if we could plant some trees in our courtyard. Reluctantly, I agreed. At the time, it just seemed like one more task for me to complete, another activity to add to my already heaping plate; but the students took charge. They raised the money and stayed after school a few times last spring to help plant the trees and bushes.
