Meal Services Update free meals continue
The Shelton School District will provide free meals for the 2021-22 school year. Due to the public health emergency, USDA has given schools the flexibility to operate the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) in the 21-22 school year. 

  • Meals at no charge will be available for all students for the 2021-22 school year.
  • Meals will only be available for students attending school in-person. Meal sites will no longer be open for children 18 year and younger after August 31st.
  • Students bringing cold lunch and wanting to purchase milk, will have to pay 40 cents.
  • In anticipation of a return to normal child nutrition program operations and the potential expansion of P-EBT into SY 21-22, we are encouraging families to complete and submit an application for free or reduced price meals which can be found on our website.
