Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)
Community Eligibility Provision Notification
Dear Parent or Guardian:
We are pleased to inform you that Tindley Accelerated Schools will be implementing the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for meals served on the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program for the 2022-2023 school year.
All students enrolled at Tindley Accelerated Schools are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge each day of the 2022-2023 school year. No further action is required of you. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit an application. If your student was previously determined as ineligible for free or reduced-price meals for the 22-23 school year and you have made a payment for meals, we will be refunding those payments in the coming weeks.
If we can be of any further assistance, please contact Roxanne Merriweather at [email protected] or Brenda Albright at [email protected]
