  • Nationwide waivers provided flexibilities to help millions of children receive free meals at school during the COVID-19 pandemic. These waivers have ended and the school food program will be returning to normal rules that were in place before COVID-19 for the 2022-23 school year.  This will require you to complete and submit a free/reduced meal application in early August to determine if your child is eligible for free or reduced price meals at school for the 2022-23 school year.  Access to the 2022-23 online application, and paid meal pricing will be available in the coming weeks.  Questions can be directed to or Susan Frank at (518) 464-5133.

      As part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the President and Congress created the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), which provides eligible households up to $30/month (or $75/month for households living on Tribal lands) toward their internet bills, as well as a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet. 

       All households with a child who was approved to receive free or reduced price school meals under the National School Lunch Program or the School Breakfast Program, within the last 12 months, including children who attend schools participating in the Community Eligibility Provision, are eligible for ACP benefits. Households are also independently eligible if:

      (1) their income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level ($55,500 for a family of four); or

      (2) a member of the household participates in certain other Federal benefit programs—including, among others, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), Medicaid, and Federal Public Housing Assistance.
