Student Meal Status

Students attending Somerset ISD during the 2016-2017 school year who qualified for free or reduced-price meals are temporarily approved at the same status for the first 30 operating days of the 2017-2018 school year. The temporary status for students will end on Tuesday, October 10, 2017.

Parents will need to complete and submit a new application for approval before the deadline or they will need to send money on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 to pay full price for their child(ren)'s lunch. Breakfast is served at no charge to all enrolled students. 

Meal prices for lunch are: $2.00 for PK-6th grade students and $2.55 for 7th-12th grade students. Breakfast is served free to all enrolled students.

Parents are encouraged to complete and submit an application as soon as their child brings it home on the first day of school. Applications may take from 3 to 10 days from the day we receive the application at the Food Service office for parents to be notified of their child's meal status. Parents are responsible to pay for meals before the application is approved. 
Parents may send money or a sack lunch for their child while their application is being processed.

Meal applications are available at each of the campuses and the Food Service Office or you may also go online at to print an application from the Food Service webpage.

Students will be able to charge 3-days on account, which parents will be responsible to pay. After students exceed the 3-day charge limit, the student will be offered an alternate meal of a sandwich and milk.
