    SY2023-24 Update from Food Services Director, Chris Urban: The Connecticut Department of Education working with the Governor’s Office and legislative leadership, have created funds to support households by allowing 1) breakfast meals at no cost to all students in schools participating in the School Breakfast Program (SBP) and 2) lunch meals at no cost for students eligible for Free/Reduced-price meals participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). For SY2023-24, under the NSLP and SBP, free and reduced-price meal eligibility will be determined for each individual student (applications for free and reduced meals are approved each school year). Full Paid Students will return to regular price lunch. If you have any questions, please contact Chris Urban at
