COMMUNITY ELIGIBILITY PROVISION (CEP) PROGRAM
Under the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), the Iroquois District will be offering a free breakfast and lunch to all students from Pre-K to 12th grade at both the Iroquois Elementary School and the Iroquois Jr./Sr. High School for the current school year. Applications for the free/reduced price meal program are not required in order to qualify for free meals. However, in order to qualify for other programs and grants benefiting students, which are based on household income levels, the District will be sending out a household income data collection survey to gather this information. This survey is being sent home with the students during their first week of school. If you don't receive the survey or need an additional copy, it can also be downloaded from the link below.
