FREE BREAKFAST FOR ALL STUDENTS!
All Louisville City School District students will now have the opportunity to eat a free breakfast at school. Studies have shown that students who eat a healthy, balanced breakfast may have better concentration and more positive reactions to difficult tasks, resulting in increased learning and understanding.
The district was awarded a grant through the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. The grant is helping Louisville City Schools offset the cost in provide one reimbursable free breakfast each day for all students enrolled in the district at no charge. Students who would like to purchase an additional a la carte item or milk may continue to do so using funds in their PayforIt or food service account.
Breakfast will be served in the cafeteria prior to classes. There will be a variety of healthy breakfast items available for students to choose from.
Free and Reduced Lunch
Many children in the Louisville City School District receive free or reduced priced breakfasts and lunches every school day. On average, 53% of Louisville City School District students participate in the National School Lunch Program and 16% of students participate in the Breakfast Program.
Free and reduced price lunch applications are available on this page, at each school, and are distributed to parents and families at the beginning of each school year. Applications may be completed at any time during the school year as family income and circumstances change. Only one application is necessary per family. If your family receives a direct certification letter stating your child already qualifies for free lunch, no application is needed. Simply sign the waiver form and return it to the school. These letters are mailed out around the second week of August.
Applications are confidential and subject to strict approval and verification according to state and federal guidelines. If you have any questions or concerns about the free and reduced-priced breakfast and lunch program, contact your child’s school or Food Service Director, Mrs. Stacey Bettis, at (330) 871-1339.
State law mandates that students who qualify for a “free” lunch are not required to pay school fees, as long as the parent agrees to share the free and reduced meal application with school officials.
PayForIt - No Convenience Fees!
The PayForIt.net mobile app is now available for IOS (Apple) and Android. The PayForIt.net Mobile App provides the ability to make payments to replenish lunch accounts and view purchase history. The PayForIt.net mobile app is a free download.
The Louisville City School District has eliminated the fee associated with the online payment system, PayForIt.net. Using the online PayForIt payment system, parents are able to add money to their child’s lunch account or pay fees using a debit or credit card. The district has waived the fee to utilize the system so that there is no additional cost to families.
