Free Breakfast and Lunch daily for All Students

Dear Parent or Guardian:
 
Great news for you and your children! All students that attend Naugatuck Public Schools can get 1 free breakfast and 1 free lunch daily at school during the school year.


What do you have to do?

  • You do not have to pay any money or fill out a free/reduced lunch application for the students that attend Naugatuck Public Schools.
  • If you have children that attend schools in other school districts you will need to fill out a free/reduced lunch application for them and return it to their school, not Naugatuck.

For Grades K-4:

Breakfast will be served to students as they enter the building in the morning every day except on delayed opening. 

What is a breakfast meal? Your child may receive only 1 breakfast meal daily. Breakfast comes in a grab-and-go bag that has an entrée and a piece of fruit. Your child may also have but is not required to take, a milk and juice.

What is a lunch meal? Your child may receive only 1 lunch meal daily. Lunch is 1 entrée choice, up to 2
fruits, up to 2 veggies and 1 milk. In order for the meal to be free, your child must take a fruit or veggie with their meal. If your child brings lunch from home and wants milk they will either have to pay for the milk or take a fruit & veggie with it and then the milk is free.


For Grades 5-8:

Breakfast will be served every day in the cafeteria to students as they enter the building in the morning.
