    Free and Reduced Lunch applications will be available on July 1 of each year for the upcoming school year. Applications will be available at the Board of Education or the Brunswick City School website. You must fill out a new application every year. If your child/children received free or reduced lunch for the previous school year, they will continue to receive free or reduced lunch until September 30 of the new school year. If we do not receive a new application by September 30, your child will become a full price student. You will be responsible for any amount that is charged.
     
    If your child receives free lunch, you are eligible to have their school fees waived. If your child receives reduced lunch, you are eligible to have their school fees reduced. You must sign a parent waiver giving Brunswick City Schools permission to waive or reduce school fees. A fee waiver is included on the Free and Reduced Lunch Application. If your child is directly certified to receive free lunch, a parent waiver will be included on your notification letter. You must sign and return it to the Food Service Department before your school fees can be waived or reduced.
