FREE BREAKFAST AND FREE LUNCH FOR ALL STUDENTS
Wesley School qualifies to utilize the Community Eligibility Provision program during the 2022/2023 school year. The Community Eligibility Provision allows EVERY student at Wesley School to receive FREE breakfast AND lunch! There are no income limitations to be eligible. However, all families will be required to fill out a Household Information Survey to assist the district in documenting its eligibility for various state and federal grants. This form has been sent home with your student. If you need another copy, please let your teacher know. If you prefer, you may complete the Household Information Survey online at https://muskegonisd.familyportal.cloud/.
Wesley School is committed to ensuring that all of our students start the day with a healthy breakfast. We know that morning routines can be hectic and kids aren't always hungry when they wake up and that is exactly why breakfast is provided to students after the start of the school day in the classrooms. Students have the opportunity, after arrival, to eat breakfast with their classmates and get the fuel they need to be ready to learn and engage.
