Changes being made to school meals

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

Improvements to the school meal programs are based on recommendations made by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies.
“Claremore Schools have done an excellent job in the implementation of healthier foods,” said Watson. “With added greens and fruits, I think our school lunches look very good.”
Claremore school lunch prices have increased somewhat to better match the reimbursement amount needed for SFAs to remain certified. Prices have increased 10 cents from $2.25 to $2.35 for elementary and junior high lunch, and $2.50 to $2.60 for high school lunch.
Children from households whose income is at or below the household size and income criteria are eligible for free or reduced-priced school meals. Application forms have been sent to all homes throughout the district, with a letter to parents or guardians. To apply for free or reduced-priced meals, parents/guardians should fill out the application and return it to the student’s school.  Additional copies are available at the principal’s office in each Claremore school. Applications may be submitted at any time during the year.
