HAMILTON-WENHAM REGIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT
FREE AND REDUCED COST LUNCH
The District will take part in the National School Lunch Program and other food programs that may become available to assure that all children in the District receive proper nourishment.
In accordance with guidelines for participation in these programs, and in accordance with the wishes of the Committees, no child whom a teacher believes is improperly nourished will be denied a lunch or other food simply because proper application has not yet been received from his parents/guardians.
As required by state and federal regulations, the School Committee approves a policy statement pertaining to eligibility for free milk, free meals, and reduced price meals.
