Free BKW school meals extended through Dec. 31

Berne-Knox-Westerlo Central School District families:

This letter is to inform you that school meals will be free to all BKW school children through Dec. 31, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has announced. The extension of the free meal policy is part of an effort to ensure children have access to meals during the COVID-19 pandemic. To receive a free meal, students must choose the completely reimbursable meal option (e.g. entree, fruit, vegetable, milk). Snacks and beverages are not free. Students wishing to purchase snacks or beverages must have money available on their K12PaymentCenter account. 

Families that qualify for free or reduced priced meals must still submit an application so they will continue to receive these benefits after Dec. 31. To apply, complete the application linked to this website
