Thirty Day Grace Period
Students who were approved for free or reduced priced meals last year in the Sharyland ISD school district (and were active students at the end of the school year) are allowed to eat free meals or reduced-priced meals for up to 30 days based on last year's application. This grace period gives the Child Nutrition Program time to process all the applications for this school year. If the eligibility status changes based on this year's applications, the new status will be effective immediately.
Younger brothers and sisters may also eat free or reduced-priced meals during the grace period based on the family's status from last year. Siblings who now live with an eligible family may participate in the grace period.
New students to Sharyland schools may not participate in the grace period. We must have an approved application on file before we can provide a free or reduced meal.
