Our school breakfast and lunch program is  CEP (Community Eligibility Program) model.  The CEP models allows ALL students to receive free breakfast and lunch. It is important to note, that this program does not waive the school fees.   Parents will still need to qualify for that on an individual basis. 

***Any milk taken without the breakfast or lunch will incur a $.50 charge to the families account. District 165 utilizes a family breakfast/lunch account system. Family members, regardless of the building the student attends, will share one account. MCMS, Grant, and Locust students will use ID cards to access their family account.
