While meals for the 2021-2022 school year will be provided at no cost to all Osseo Area Schools students, district families are encouraged to complete the free or reduced-price lunch application by Sept. 30 to see if they qualify for other benefits, such as reduced activity fees, reduced instrument rental fees, and even lower internet costs. Applications may be completed at any time during the school year, but applying by Sept. 30 can help schools qualify for additional funding.
Families who complete the application for meal benefits can also help their schools qualify for educational funding and discounts—ensuring more opportunities, support and partnerships to help scholars thrive. Applications are required every year, so even if you’ve applied in the past, it’s important to apply again by Sept. 30.
Completing the form is quick and easy! Although SmartSchoolK12 is the preferred method, you can still access and complete the form online even without an account.
