If you are a returning student and you participate in the National School Lunch Program and receive free or reduced brunch and lunch, you will need to reapply by Tuesday, September 23rd, or the system will automatically drop you.  You can go to the District website and apply online.  Although you have plenty of time, it is better to get this done sooner than later.  Have a great year and welcome back!
