Free and Reduced Meal Benefits
Students who receive free or reduced-price meal benefits during the school year will continue to receive those benefits during summer school. If you have any questions, please contact Park Hill Nutrition Services at (816) 359-4090.

For new district students or students from other districts who are attending summer school, an application for free or reduced meals is available online or complete the paper application. The completed application can be mailed or dropped off at one of the summer school buildings. This must be done prior to the end of May in order for qualified families to receive benefits on the first day of summer school.

If you already have a student in the district who is approved for free or reduced meal benefits and you have an incoming kindergartner who will start school this fall and attend summer school, you don’t need to fill out the form again. Please contact the Park Hill Nutrition Services by calling (816) 359-4090 or emailing Susan Weaver, and provide the name of the incoming kindergarten student as well as any other siblings in the household who are currently on the program. You must do this in order for the kindergarten student to receive the same benefit as his or her older siblings.

How do I arrange for my child to receive his or her medication during summer school?
Fill out a medication form (PDF) and include it with your application.
