Changes to National School Lunch Program

August 4, 2022

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, schools that participate in the Federally funded National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and/or the School Breakfast Program (SBP) have been operating under waivers that allowed participating schools to provide meals to all students at no charge, regardless of eligibility, through the end of the 2021-22 school year. These waivers have expired and are not available for the 2022-23 school year. Therefore, meals will be provided and charged to students based on their eligibility for free, reduced price, or paid. 

Eligibility for free and reduced price meals is based on Federal income eligibility guidelines or participation in other programs including Food Share, W-2 Cash Benefits, Food Distribution on Indian Reservations, and some Medicaid programs. Households are encouraged to apply for free or reduced price meal benefits before the start of the school year. 

Applications for free and reduced lunch were inserted in  the July Rosholt Record.  They can also be picked up at the main school office. 

For the 2022-23 school year, the price of reduced and paid lunches are as follows: 




Elementary (K-5)



Middle (6-8)



High (9-12)



Reduced Price 

(All grade levels)



If you have questions, are unsure of your child(ren)s eligibility for free or reduced price meals, or would like to request an application, please contact Tricia Kertzman at 715-677-4542 or .
