Stratford School District to End Reduced Meals in Schools

Beginning Tuesday, January 3rd

Students whose households are eligible for free or reduced meals can submit free and reduced-price meal applications, the district said.  School officials said it is important for families to apply as soon as possible to avoid any possible charges.  The online application is located on the district’s website:
