COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITY ECONOMIC RESOURCES


Brigantine Public School District is committed to ensuring that all of our students, regardless of the economic conditions in our geographic area, are provided with all necessary resources to succeed.  We are also committed to ensuring that each student is able to fully participate in Brigantine Schools’ extracurricular activities regardless of economic status.  Brigantine Schools encourage all families that are eligible to apply for participation in the federal free and reduced lunch program.  Participation in this program will provide your student with a free or reduced cost breakfast and lunch.

FREE AND REDUCED SCHOOL MEALS

Brigantine Public School District participates in the federal free and reduced school meals program.  Families may apply for participation in this program at any time during the year if their economic status has changed.  Program eligibility is based upon the current month’s family income including unemployment benefits and severance.  A family’s income in the months prior to the date of unemployment is not considered.  Below are links to Brigantine Public School District’s free and reduced school meals program applications.

For a confidential appointment with a member of Brigantine Public School District’s staff to discuss eligibility for free and reduced school meals, please contact Mrs. Jeannine Bonanni at 609.264.9501 or at jbonanni@brigantineschools.org.
