Food & Nutrition Services
The waiver which allowed NKC Schools to provide free meals for all students last year has been extended through the entire 2021-2022 school year! Breakfast and lunch will continue to be provided free of charge at all of our buildings.
Families are still strongly encouraged to apply for the free/reduced price meals program. This ensures discounts on a variety of other programs, including testing, activity fees and more! Apply online here.
Students attending virtually are also welcome to take advantage of free lunch programs; meals can be picked up in the cafeteria following the school lunch schedule.
As they are updated and become available, each school handbook may be found on individual school websites, under the For Families tab.
