    We are pleased to inform you that all KPS schools and Kalamazoo RESA ECSE, Valley Center, Young Adult Program and Woods Edge will be participating in the Seamless Summer Option as part of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program for the School Year 2021-2022.  

    The GREAT NEWS is that ALL students enrolled at our school can receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at NO CHARGE to your household each day.

    We are asking that KPS families still fill out and sign the Household Information report and KRESA families fill out the Free & Reduced Application (KRESA online app. www.lunchapp.com).  These reports are critical in determining the amount of money that our school receives from a variety of State and Federal supplemental programs like Title I A, At-risk (31a), Title II A, E-Rate, etc.

    **If you are applying for a scholarship with an organization, you must complete the appropriate form to qualify for these benefits.
