RE:                 Direct Certification List of Students Eligible for Free Meals or Milk



** Please forward to Assistant Superintendents, Principals and Food Service Directors **



The 2004-05 Direct Certification List of Predetermined Students Eligible for Free Meals or Milk is available on the web at  The Superintendent may access the Direct Certification List of eligible children by using the ID and password for approval of forms for the School Lunch Program.


Please take extra precautions to maintain the confidentiality of the information on this reference list.  It should be available only to those individuals who have responsibility for making school meal eligibility determinations.


The Department of Human Services Letters of Notification of Predetermined Eligibility may be counted as eligibility documentation.  Handwritten names added by a parent or guardian must be checked against the Direct Certification List.


Should you have questions regarding the list, please contact Mary Moody, by email or by phone 624-6876.


If there are problems with IDs and passwords, please contact Nanci Kittredge, by email or by phone 624-6877.


Thank you.
