School in Springfield begins…. August, 22!  Besides school supplies, parents, you also need to fill out the application to find out if your child is eligible for reduced price or free meals.

Officials from Springfield public schools are asking that parents fill out the form even if they have not applied before or have been eligible in past school years.

Applications will be sent to parents the last week of July. If you don’t receive one, contact  R-12 Springfield Public Schools.

If your child’s application is not updated, the student will have to pay full price for their meals.
