Support Services for Families

Dear Marshwood Families,

Now that we are approaching the mid-point of the school year, we want to inform you about some support services we have available for families.  This seems particularly important at this time because families in our community may be affected by the Government Shutdown.

MSAD 35 participates in the Federal Government’s School Nutrition Program.  We are able to provide Free/Reduced Lunches for students’ families who qualify through this program .  The form is always sent home at the beginning of each school year, but we want to make families aware that an application may be submitted ANYTIME. Families who experience a change of circumstances (losing a job, unable to work due to illness, Government Shutdown, etc.) may apply at anytime so that eligibility can be determined.  Access to this program is highly confidential, and the forms are available in all district offices. That link for downloading the form is included in this letter.

 

To apply – An application can be downloaded from the Maine Department of Education’s website (linked below) and submitted to your local school’s food service program.
