Effective for School Year 2021-22, North Platte Public School District will serve meals at no charge to enrolled students. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved use of the Seamless Summer Option (SSO), which allows local school districts to provide no-cost meals to all enrolled students for the duration of the 2021-22 school year. 
If you believe your family qualifies for Free or Reduced-price school meals, please complete a school year 2021-22 meal application. This information may be valuable for P-EBT and carryover of meal benefits for school year 2022-23. Applications are available at each school office and online on the Parent Portal link below
If families do not already have a parent portal account set up, they can contact Connie in the Welcome Center at
A complete application is not required for enrolled students to receive meals at no cost for SY2021-22.

Those who wish to receive waivers for other school fees, such as course fees, activities fees, and other items will need to complete the application and qualify for the free and reduced lunch program.
