Pay-to-participate fees and other school fees can be waived or reduced for students who qualify for free or reduced-price meals.
How do I know if I'm eligible?
The criteria often change from year to year, so we encourage everyone to apply to find out. It's easy and it's confidential.
Are students who receive free or reduced-price meals identified when they get their breakfast or lunch?
Absolutely not. Everyone who checks out in a Cloverleaf cafeteria simply scans the bar code on their school I.D. No one sees how your meal is being paid for. Your privacy is protected.
My family likely could benefit from this, but would we be taking resources away from others who may need them more?
No. Actually, the opposite is true! First, there are no limits on how many families can sign up. Second, Cloverleaf's federal funding for many educational programs is based on the number of students who sign-up for free or reduced-price meals. By taking part, you are helping all Cloverleaf students.
