Free and Reduced-Price Meals
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended its free meals waiver, allowing school meal programs across the country to continue serving healthy meals to children at no cost, until June 30, 2022. All students will have access to free breakfast and lunch for the 2021-22 academic year.
To apply for free and reduced price meals for your children during a year other than 2021-22, please fill out the Free and Reduced Lunch Application. Complete only one form for your household, sign your name and return it to Superintendent Secretary Elizabeth Liberti in the District Office. For any questions, please call 518-537-6281 ext. 2302.
Meal Shaming Procedures
The goal of the Germantown Central School District is to provide students access to nutritious meals each school day. To ensure that a student whose parent/guardian has unpaid school meal fees is not shamed or treated differently than a student whose parent/guardian does not have unpaid meal fees, we follow meal shaming procedures.
