Free and Reduced Price Lunch Application
Parents/guardians who may qualify for Free and Reduced Meal prices are required to complete a Free and Reduced-Price Meal Application
in order to be eligible. Free and Reduced Meal prices afford several district and external benefits for students.
Parents can complete the Free and Reduced-Price Meal Application online through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal under the ‘More’ tab at http://portal.swcsd.us
. Paper applications are also available in all school buildings and at the Food Services Department. Your child’s application is only good for one school year and the first few days of the start of the next school year.
Thus, applications must be completed every year

This past March, the federal school meal waiver that previously made it possible to offer free meals for school districts nationwide were not extended as a part of the recently passed, federal Omnibus Appropriations Bill.
What does this mean for school meals next year?
The federal waiver that made school breakfast and lunch at no cost to families are set to expire June 30, 2022. Due to this Federal change, all meals will return to full pay for the 2022-2023 school year. Households may qualify for free or reduced-price meals by completing a free and reduced-price meal application. Click here to read more.
Online Food Service Payments
Parents can make school food service payments through their Infinite Campus Parent Portal. The ‘Payments’ tab and tool provides Portal users with the ability to pay fees and deposit food service money online using a major credit card, checking or savings account. This tool eliminates the need to send cash or checks with a student to school and provides parents a simple way to stay on top of school fees and services.
The ‘Food Service’ tab in the Portal allows parents and students access to current account balances, transactions, account history, and account adjustments.
