We are glad to be able to meet the needs of students during these times with approval to run this program. Due to the unknown timeline that it will be available, we urge families to submit updated free and reduced meal applications. The application will be valid through the end of the school year. Applications are confidential, and instructions for applying can be found at www.fpsct.org under Food Service. If you have any questions, please contact Nicole Phoenix at phoenixn@fpsct.org.
