JES Lunch Program

Free and/or Reduced meals will be provided to students if a Family Application is returned to the school and the application meets the Income Eligibility Guidelines. To apply for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals, a Family Application must be completed and signed by an adult household member and returned to the school. One application per family with names of ALL household members, ALL earnings, and student information (name, school, grade, etc.) is required. Meals may be paid for in advance. 

Menus are printed and sent home every month or can be found here. Students are offered what is on the menu plus fresh fruits and vegetables every day.
