Springs Charter Schools is participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the 2018-2019 school year. Section 104(a) of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 amended section 11(a)(1) of the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act (42 U.S.C. 1759a(a)(1))(the law) to provide an alternative to household applications for free and reduced-price meals in local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with increased levels of low-income students. This alternative is referred to as the Community Eligibility Provision. All students enrolled in Springs Charter Schools may participate in the breakfast and lunch program at no charge to them at the following sites:
- Hemet Quest Student Center
- Hemet Student Center
- Bear River Student Center
- Magnolia Student Center
Families will not have to fill out meal applications for students serviced at these locations. Breakfast and lunch meals follow the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) guidelines for healthy school meals. Please encourage students to participate in the school meal programs.
Springs Charter Schools will annually evaluate every site to determine their eligibility potential for CEP. In accordance with Education Code 49564, any site determined to be high poverty will be enlisted in CEP or another appropriate universal meal program.
