Sign-Up Information

There are a few things that parents need to do if they are interested in participating:

  • Fill out the Free and Reduced Price Meal ApplicationDUE AUG 2
    • Optional, but if you qualify, you will be receive a PEBT card to reimburse you for lunch expenses for summer 2021. If you are receiving SNAP or TANF, you automatically qualify to receive the card, or if you already have the card, the funds will be deposited on it.
  • Sign-Up for School Lunch – DUE JULY 27 for August 2021 Meals
    • Lunches are free to all students, but you need to sign-up. Fill out the School Lunch Sign-Up Form (one form per student)
    • If you would like to purchase milk only, use this form as well

Public Charter Schools are not required to offer free lunches, but Ka’ohao School has applied for a waiver to allow us to offer this great benefit to our students. However, we have to cover the cost of the meal (~$6) if your child does not pick it up, so please make sure that your child picks up the lunch if you sign up.

Changes to your school lunch plan (cancellation, frequency, or new sign-ups) can be made on a monthly basis and must be done in writing to Ruth Maiwela, School Lunch Coordinator, rmaiwela@kaohaoschool.org, 7 business days before the new month starts.
