All students will be served breakfast and lunch at no charge at Hope Elementary School. For additional information, please contact Angela Wheaton at [email protected]

Studies show that children who are not hungry perform better in school. By providing both breakfast and lunch at no cost to students, we are helping to create a better learning environment.

The school meals that we serve follow U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines for healthy school meals. The School Breakfast and Lunch Programs cannot succeed without your support; please encourage your children to participate in the school meals programs.

The application requesting economic information supports many programs at our schools which helps reduce the local tax. Please complete and return the forms. Only one per family is needed.
