The new device will be distributed in their homeroom class.

Nutrition Services Department

The United States Department of Agriculture’s free meals program for schools, approved by Congress in 2020 during the early days of the pandemic, ended on June 30, 2022.  Therefore, the District’s Food Services Department will return to pre-pandemic operations under the National School Lunch Program. 

Meal Prices and Menus can be found on the District’s Nutrition Services Webpage.

Free/Reduced Meals

Free and Reduced Applications are available in the school offices, on the district website, or at They should be completed and returned to the school office or mailed to Melissa Schad, 258 Josephs Lane, Pittsburgh, PA 15237.

As a reminder, Free/Reduced Applications were not processed in the 2021-22 school year, so there is no 30-day carry-over for the 2022-23 school year. Families must submit an application before the first day of school (If you did not receive a Letter of Direct Certification stating that you are automatically eligible), or your child will be charged the total price for meals, and you will be responsible for these charges.
