Online process for Free/Reduced Meal Applications

 

SCUSD announces an exciting way of applying for free and reduced meals. The Online Free/Reduced Meal Application process is available for all families in English as well as Spanish for the school year.  Please submit applications for the school year AFTER July 1st or they will be invalid.  All families will be able to go to https://onlinemealapps.scusd.net anywhere they would like…libraries, home, school sites, etc.  Only ONE application is needed per household and so if you apply online you do not need to fill out a paper application.   

Biometrics (Finger Scanning) Program at Laurelwood

 

During the 2016-2017 school year, Laurelwood began a biometric finger scanning identification system for our cafeteria meal program in an effort to provide accurate student identification as well as security for our student accounts. This will replace our meal cards and students inputting their pin numbers. We want to eliminate identification errors and clerical errors and provide an easy and accurate way to identify students and be sure no one else can charge items to their accounts. Students will scan their fingers as they come through the cafeteria to account for their meal.
