Free and Reduced Meals

Even though school meals are free to all students during the 2020-21 school year, it's still important that you complete a Free/Reduced Meal Application to be eligible for other benefits like Textbook Rental Assistance.
The Free and Reduced Price Meal Application is available during online registration.  Online applications are available all year through Skyward Family Access. Click on the Food Services tab (on the left). Click on “applications” (toward top of page). This is the preferred method.

You can find the paper application at the bottom of this page to print. If you do not have access to a printer, you can pick up an application at the School Nutrition Office at Valparaiso High School.
Students eligibility for free or reduced meals is completely confidential and coded into our point of sale system so that even the cashiers don't know a child's status.
