The Middleborough Public Schools utilizes the website (http://www.middleboro.k12.ma.us) to inform parents of the availability of the National School Lunch and Breakfast programs. The eligibility criteria for the free and reduced price meals are embedded in the meal application and instructions and available by linking to… http://www.fns.usda.gov/sites/default/files/2014-04788.pdf to see the entire chart. Annually, we post these items on our website, at each school and office in the district, and mail them to homes when necessary. They are also sent home to each student at the beginning of the year. All families are notified that if they qualify through the Virtual Gateway, we will extend those benefits to all children within the household. We ask that they contact us with this information when they are informed that one or more children in the household have been determined eligible.
