Free Student Meals
Every Goldendale School District, not attending online, student is eligible to receive free breakfast and lunch for the 2023-2024 school year. The program allows for one complete meal for each student. This means that if a student brings their lunch from home and wants milk or a second breakfast or lunch, the student's account will be charged accordingly.
Free meals are made possible by the federally-funded program called Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). Although there is no application for free meals, the district does send out the Family Income Survey. This form is sent to families and requests household income information so that Goldendale School District is eligible to receive state funding for important educational programs that our students are entitled to. If your family receives this form, we encourage you to fill it out and return it as soon as possible.
Family Income Survey
Please take a moment to complete the Family Income Survey. The survey captures and ensures the district/school receives state funding for educational programs. You can fill out the income survey below.
Although student meals are free this school year through the CEP, families must still meet household income guidelines to qualify their student for reduced/free sports, ASB, etc. fees. We no longer collect Free and Reduced-Price applications every year, instead, we must collect the Family Income Survey. This survey helps us collect household information for all students attending CEP schools. Without this information, Goldendale School District could lose important state funding for educational programs that our students are entitled to.
