    SCHOOL FEE WAIVER INFORMATION

    Welcome to the 2019-20 school year!  Children need healthy meals to learn. The Solon Schools offer healthy meals every school day. The lunch prices are as follows: $3.40 for grades K-6 and $3.65 for grades 7-12. Your children may qualify for free meals or for reduced-priced meals. Reduced prices are: $0.40 for lunch.

    Please review the following information carefully.  Students who qualify for free or reduced lunches also qualify for free or reduced fees. This includes a complete waiver of fees for students who qualify for free lunches.  A NEW APPLICATION MUST BE APPROVED FOR THE 2019-20 SCHOOL YEAR IN FORDER TO RECEIVE THE WAIVER FOR FREE OR REDUCED FEES.  There are two methods for qualification:

    1. DIRECT CERTIFICATION
      1. If you received a letter stating that your student is ELIGIBLE FOR DIRECT CERTIFICATION, YOU DO NOT need to fill out an application for free or reduced lunches. Your student is automatically eligible for free lunches and the fee waiver.
      2. All children living in the household with a student who qualifies under Direct Certification are also eligible for free lunches and fee waivers. Please contact Lynne Hutchison, Solon Food Service Director, at (440) 349-7703, if there are additions in the household that were not listed in the letter.
    2. ONLINE APPLICATION PROCESS

    This year we are processing our Free & Reduced applications online.  Please use the following link to access the online application: CLICK HERE FOR FREE & REDUCED LUNCH APPLICATION
