Children from households whose income is at or below the levels shown are eligible for free or reduced-price meals. Application forms are being sent to all homes with a letter to parents or guardians. To apply for free or reduced-price meals households should fill out the application and return it to the school. Additional copies are available at the principal’s office in each school. The information provided on the application is confidential and will be used for the purpose of determining eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school year by school or other program officials. Applications may be submitted at any time during the year.

For school officials to determine eligibility, households receiving SNAP or “Temporary Assistance to Needy Families” (TANF) or “Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations” (FDPIR) must list each child’s name, the related SNAP, TANF, or FDPIR case number, and the signature of an adult household member. If you do not list a SNAP or TANF or FDPIR case number for all children you are applying for, then the application must have the children’s names, the names of all household members, the amount of income each person received the last month and where it came from, the signature of an adult household member and the adult’s social security number or mark the box if the adult does not have a social security number. Foster children also categorically qualify for free meals/milk, regardless of the child’s income. If you have foster children living with you and wish to apply for such meals or milk for them, please complete the application as instructed.

Under the provisions of the policy, Nicole Pearce will review applications and determine eligibility.

Parents or guardians wishing to make a formal appeal may make a request either orally or in writing to:

Rick Thomas

Superintendent

355 South Osage St

Skiatook, OK 74070

Child Nutrition Services
 
Mission Statement 
 
As a partner in the education process of children, it is the mission of Child Nutrition Services (CNS) to provide nutritious, economical, appealing meals to all children while complying with local, state and national regulations. 

In 1946 Congress passed the National School Lunch Act which was enacted as a grant-in-aid program to safeguard the health of children. This act was brought on because many soldiers failed physicals during World War II due to nutrition-related problems. In 1969 the White House Conference on Food, Nutrition and Health led to subsidized reimbursable meals for low-income students. In 1975 Congress authorized the School Breakfast Program.

The Skiatook Public Schools (SPS), Child Nutrition Services Department operates under signed agreements with the Oklahoma State Department of Education and the Department of Human Services. The National School Lunch and National School Breakfast Programs are administered by the United States Department of Agriculture. The Child Nutrition Services Department of the Skiatook Public School District serves approximately 400 breakfast meals and approximately 1400 lunches each school day.  A total of 297,505 nutritious breakfast and lunch meals were served to children in the Skiatook School District last year.
 
Child Nutrition Services Department employs 30 individuals working approximately 600 hours. Our employees are dedicated to a partnership supporting the educational and performance objectives of the district. Through CNS, over $1 million dollars get funneled into the economy by way of salaries, food, services and equipment purchases.
