Free and Reduced Program

  • Parkway Schools is pleased to offer free breakfast and lunch to students for the 2021-2022 school year.  We encourage parents/guardians to complete the application to receive discounts and savings with several programs.   It is important for families to sign up for the Free and Reduced Program so you are in the system for the 2022-2023 school year.  This way your child would be covered under the 30 day grace period allowing you time to re-apply for the 2022-2023 school year without being automatically placed on full paid status.  Please see below for details on how to apply.

    Apply online HERE! Students registering for the 2021-22 School Year, applications for the Free and Reduced Program are now available.
