How much does lunch cost?
The McCracken County School District is a CEP (Community Eligibility Provision) school district. This means EVERY child receives FREE breakfast and lunch; however, your child may qualify to receive additional benefits such as fee waivers for textbooks, the ACT, and athletics.
As a CEP district, we are required to have an application for every household.
The application cannot be completed in the web browser Edge, on a mobile device such as an iPhone or iPad, or Chromebook.
IT’S A SIMPLE, EASY PROCESS!
- Log on to your Infinite Campus Parent Portal account.
- On the left index, go to More and Select Meal Benefits Application
- Create your E-Signature PIN
In order to submit a legally-binding application to the district, an E-Signature PIN must be established. The E-Signature PIN allows users to submit an electronic signature along with the application which is treated the same legally as a signature made on the paper application. Keep your PIN in a secure location. If you
have already created a PIN and do not remember it, you may select “Forgot Your PIN” at the end of the application process to make a new one.
- Once you’ve created your PIN and select “Submit”, review your Letter to Household. If you already have a PIN, your Letter to Household will be the first screen. Continue to follow the prompts by selecting “Next” and answer the questions until your application is complete. Enter your PIN for the electronic signature and select “Submit”. You will have the opportunity to review your application.
Can I bring my child lunch?
Students will not be allowed to bring commercially prepared foods (i.e.: McDonald’s, Burger King, carbonated beverages) into the cafeteria. This is in accordance with federal guidelines.
Can I come and eat lunch with my child?
MCPS will continue to limit visitors to schools. Buildings will be open to essential personnel and essential direct access providers/vendors only.
