Application forms are being made available to all homes along with a letter to parents or guardians. To apply for free or reduced price meals, households should fill out the application and return it to their students school or the District Food Service Office. Additional copies are available at the principal’s office in each school and at the District Food Service Office, located at the Horizon Complex . The information provided on the application will be used for the purpose of determining eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school year by other program officials. Eligibility will be determined within 10 days after receipt of the application in the District Food Service Office.

School officials cannot approve an application for free or reduced price benefits unless it contains complete documentation. Households not receiving SNAP or TANF benefits must provide: Names of all household members, last four digits of social security number of the adult signing the form and the income each person receives. An adult household member must sign the application certifying that the information provided is correct. Households receiving SNAP or TANF benefits must provide the child’s name, his/her SNAP, or TANF case number and the signature and name of an adult household member.

Applications may be submitted at any time during the year.

Under the provisions of the free and reduced price policy, the Eligibility Official will review applications and determine eligibility. Parents or guardians dissatisfied with the ruling of the official may wish to discuss the decision with the determining official on an informal basis. Parents wishing to make a formal appeal may make a request either orally or in writing to Superintendent, Uinta County School District #1, PO Box 6002, Evanston, Wyoming 82931-6002, 789-7571 for a hearing on the decision.

If a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size increases, the household should complete an application for free or reduced priced meal benefits. The household may now be eligible for benefits if the household’s income is at or below the levels shown above.

In certain cases foster children are also eligible for school meal benefits. If a household wishes to apply for benefits for foster children living with them, the household should contact the school for more information.

The information provided by the household is confidential and will be used only for purposes of determining eligibility and verifying data.

The Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act requires the information on this application. You do not have to give the information, but if you do not, we cannot approve your child for free or reduced price meals. You must include the last four digits of the social security number of the adult household member who signs the application. The last four digits of the social security number is not required when you apply on behalf of a foster child or you list a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Program or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) case number or other FDPIR identifier for your child or when you indicate that the adult household member signing the application does not have a social security number. We will use your information to determine if your child is eligible for free or reduced price meals, and for administration and enforcement of the lunch and breakfast programs. We MAY share your eligibility information with education, health, and nutrition programs to help them evaluate, fund, or determine benefits for their programs, auditors for program reviews, and law enforcement officials to help them look into violations of program rules.
