PRESS RELEASE FROM ALPENA PUBLIC SCHOOLS:
Funding that provided free lunch and breakfast for all students during the pandemic has ended.
Nearly 60% of families in the Alpena Public Schools service area can qualify for free and reduced breakfast and lunch at school.
Adequate nutrition is absolutely vital to the daily success of our students. It is shown to improve concentration, mood and behavior for students. Please help your child to have their best opportunity to succeed academically and socially this school year.
It is very important for families to complete and return the paperwork needed to continue this option for their students. APS is sending paperwork by mail and email or families can complete it online at www.alpenaschools.com/district/food-service/.
Any family that needs assistance completing the application can contact their child’s school. If you have questions please contact Food Service Director Nic Wiser (989) 358-5021 or [email protected]
