Benefits to your school
The State of California has revamped its funding system for schools. Each student enrolled in the National School Lunch Program generates over $1,700 of additional instructional funding for your school. These are critically needed funds to continue and expand the great programs at our school!
Several Federal funding sources are dependent on the percentage of students enrolled in this program.
We are pleased to announce the availability to apply for the National School Lunch Program online. Although primarily income based, various household scenarios allow students to qualify. Please check it out online. The process is safe, secure, private and available anytime, anywhere. Please go to the Nevada Joint Union High School website at nevadaunion.njuhsd.com for the link. This service provides the highest level of data encryption available, meaning that your information is always safe and guarded. You may apply online in the comfort and privacy of your own home. The online service is available 24/7 anytime, anywhere there is an Internet connection. Your data is transmitted to the Nevada Joint Union High School District Nutrition Office the same day you apply, allowing for confidential and swift processing.
After your application is approved, your student just needs to join the breakfast/lunch line with the other students (paying or not). At the register, he/she simply gives his/her student identification number to the server and he/she will be provided with a complete meal.
Even if your student is not interested in the meals, please take a moment to complete this important application as it means so much to our schools!
