Union School District participates in a program called Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). This program is a non-pricing meal service option for schools and school districts in low-income areas. CEP allows the nation’s highest poverty schools and districts to serve a healthy breakfast and lunch at zero cost to all enrolled students for the 2023-2024 school year, without collecting household applications.
Our students do have the opportunity to purchase “extras” at meal times. For that reason, money can still be added to their accounts via the My School Bucks website.
Also, due to the district’s participation in CEP, your family may be eligible to receive discounts on home internet service. Information on these can be found in the attachment. You will need documentation that your child attends Union School District to be used in the application process.
We will continue to provide cost-saving updates throughout the year, as they become available.
