Principal’s Report


Welcome to the year 2020; I guess when you have been in the school system for the vast majority of your life, 2020 seemed so far away. Yet, here we are, and the more things change, the more they stay the same. We are still working with kids and I love that part of the job! Things continue to march along in the High School. We returned from our break and have now transitioned into the second semester. Our first semester awards assembly was held on Tuesday, January 14th in the small gymnasium. Thirty-seven students were nominated for the Antelope Citizenship of the Quarter award last quarter. The recipients were as follows: Freshmen Virginia Tolman and Thane-Carter Bayes, Sophomores Riley Lucas and Toby Clow, Juniors Teanna Pierce and Derek Combe, and Seniors McKenzie Schulthies and Riley Bradford.

A Word About Free and Reduced Meals

Children need healthy meals to learn. Adrian School District offers healthy meals every school day. Breakfast costs $1.90; lunch costs $3 for k-5 and $3.10 for 6-12. Your children may qualify for free meals or for reduced price meals. Reduced price is $0 for breakfast and $0 for lunch by a grant paid by the state. This packet includes an application for free or reduced price meal benefits, and a set of detailed instructions. Below are some common questions and answers to help you with the application process.

Who can get free OR REDUCED PRICE meals?

 All children in households receiving benefits from Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, TANF or FDPIR, are eligible for free meals.

 Foster children that are under the legal responsibility of a foster care agency or court are eligible for free meals.

 Children participating in their school’s Head Start program are eligible for free meals.

Children who meet the definition of homeless, runaway, or migrant are eligi-ble for free meals.

Children may receive free or reduced price meals if your household’s in-come is within the limits on the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines. Your children may qualify for free or reduced price meals if your household in-come falls at or below the limits on this chart.

How do our free and reduced numbers affect or not affect our school and lunch program?

1. Most importantly, each child has the opportunity to eat a healthy meal or two during the school day and be better prepared to learn.
