Forms and Applications

Please see below for information regarding free/reduced price meals. You may also access menu information through our interactive online lunch menu.

Dear East Rochester School District Families,

I hope this message finds you well. Below please find the following documents related to the 2021-22 school lunch program:

1) Application for free or reduced price meals for the 2021-22 school year;

2) the parent letter including instructions and information regarding the application process

3) a parent disclosure agreement

If you wish to apply for free or reduced price meals, please print the application, fill it out completely, and mail it back to East Rochester Schools, 222 Woodbine Avenue, East Rochester, NY 14445. If you choose not to mail the application back to us, you are welcome to hand deliver it to the District Office Monday - Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. or drop it off at the Main Office of your child’s school and they will send it to the Food Service Office.

Why should you fill out an application when ALL students eat for free in the 2021-22 school year?

Even if your child chooses to bring their own lunch, or goes to a school where all students receive free lunch, filling out the form is very important! It ensures that your school gets all of the funding and benefits available to support teachers and students. Also, even if your child does not eat school lunch, students who qualify for free lunch also can receive other benefits like:

- Access to future P-EBT benefits if they become available
- Possible discounts for your family on applicable service-based vendor programs
- Reduced fees for SAT and ACT tests and college applications
- Reduced fees for AP exams

How does filling out the Multipurpose Family Income Form help my school?

- Schools may become eligible for money to fund after school programs
- Schools get more money in their budgets to support students

If you prefer a hard copy of the attached documents be mailed to you, please email michele.griffith@erschools.org or call 585-248-6307 and we would be happy to send you a copy. A copy will also be included as an insert in the 2021-22 District Calendar sent home with students during the first week of school.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to send an email or give us a call.

Enjoy the rest of your summer.
