Free/Reduced Lunch Applications

McKinley Elementary is a Title One school.  You can learn more about what it means to be a Title One school when you click on the link above labeled "Title One".  Being a Title One school gives us many benefits including a full day Kindergarten class, math/literacy coaches and aides and many other great benefits that we could lose if we are not a Title One school.

Title One schools are chosen based off our percentage of families that qualify for free or reduced lunch.  Even if you don't plan to take advantage of free or reduced lunch, qualifying for it helps increase our numbers.  Please click on the the "Free/Reduced Lunch Application" tab above for more information and instructions on how to apply.  These applications need to be completed by Oct. 31st.

Help us keep our Title One status!  Thank you for your help and support.
