Free/reduced lunch and fee waivers for 2022-23 school year

As required by law, this notice about free/reduced lunch and fee waivers was sent to all families in Community Consolidated School District 89.

Free/Reduced Lunch

The application and guidelines used to determine if your family qualifies for free or reduced lunch prices have been posted on the district website at The district follows national guidelines to determine eligibility for free or reduced lunches.

The forms can be filled out and submitted to your child’s school office or directly to the district office, attention Lauren Parker. A printed application can be supplied by your school secretary or at the district office during regular business hours. Approval or denial letters will be mailed to your home address.

Students approved for free or reduced pricing must scan their ID card and take a complete meal to qualify. If your child is approved for free or reduced lunch pricing and they do not take a complete qualifying lunch when walking through the lunch line, they will be charged for the cost of the items they do select.

If you have already received a Direct Certification approval letter from Lauren Parker for the 2022-2023 school year, you do not need to complete a lunch application.
