Dear Parents and Guardians:

Clover Park School District (CPSD) is participating in a federal program available to select schools as part of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). In a CEP school, all students receive a nutritious breakfast and lunch at no cost, regardless of family income. Custer, Dower, Lake Louise, Lakeview, Park Lodge, Tillicum and Tyee Park Elementary Schools qualify for the CEP program. You have a student who is scheduled to attend one of these schools and he/she will receive breakfast and lunch at no cost.

Please complete the enclosed, confidential Family Income Survey. The information you provide impacts the funding each school receives from the federal and state government. The Family Income Survey helps to ensure your child’s school receives all of the funding it is entitled to for state and federal education programs such as No Child Left Behind, Learning Assistance Program (LAP), K-3 class size, Teacher Incentive and all-day kindergarten programs.

All information you provide is confidential as required by state and federal statute. Please complete the survey and return it to your student’s school no later than Friday, September 22.

You will receive a separate Application for Free and Reduced-Priced Meals, for any other children who do not attend a CEP school. These students will then be charged for meals base on your free, reduced or paid eligibility.

If your child transfers from a CEP school to a non-CEP school during the school year, you will need to complete a free and reduced-price meal application and may be responsible for meal charges based on your eligibility.

Your assistance is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, please contact the Student Nutrition Office at (253) 583-5490.
