Reminder: Please turn in Your School Lunch Forms

Dear Parents/Guardians,

This is a reminder to please fill out the school meals application if you have not done so already for the 2019-2020 school year.

Even if your child does not eat the food provided by the school cafeteria or you know that you do not qualify for reduced lunch, it is imperative to fill out the meal application form which determines the federal funding your school receives. It is required for every student to submit a meal application.

It is highly recommended to fill out the application online at nyc.applyforlunch.com which is quicker, easier, and more accurate than filling out a paper application. It also avoids any confusion if you may have other children within the same or different NYC DOE school. Online applications are submitted using your child’s 9-digit ID number.

If you have any other general questions, please feel free to contact SchoolFood at (877) 363-6325. Please have your child return the form to the grade assistant principal.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Sincerely,
The MS67 Administrative Team
Gr. 6 – Ms. Lam
Gr. 7 – Mr. Rizzo
Gr. 8 – Mr. Lampoutis
