Breakfast and Lunch Menus
NMSD is participating in a federal program available to all schools as part of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). This means that all students attending all schools in North Mason School District are eligible to receive breakfast and lunch at no charge throughout the 2022-23 school year regardless of family or household income. We encourage all students to participate in both the National School Breakfast and Lunch Program. However, some of the education programs the district provides are funded from state dollars that require our school to collect household information for all students attending CEP schools.
In order to collect the information, the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) has developed the Family Income Survey. The Family Income Survey is used to capture information and ensure the district/school receives all of the funding it is entitled to for other state funded education programs. Please take a moment to complete this form and return it to your student’s school. Your participation is essential in order for us to provide OSPI with the information they need and ensure NMSD will continue to receive critical state funding for these educational programs.

The food and beverages we serve at NMSD meet the state and federal requirements, which are based on the USDA Dietary and Smart Snack Guidelines. Even though all students eat for free, we are still encouraging our families to complete a Family Income Survey.
