Lockport Township High School serves nutritious lunches every school day. All students have the opportunity to purchase lunches and students whose gross family income is at or below the levels of the Federal income poverty guidelines may be eligible for free lunch or reduced-price lunches.
Please note that the application requires the name and social security number of all adult family members. Adults without social security numbers must indicate on the form that they do not have a number. The school will verify the source and amount of income, as well as the makeup of the household. Foster children are also eligible for these benefits. If you have foster children living with you and wish to apply for free/reduced lunches complete the application form as well.
If there is a change in your family’s income due to reasons such as unemployment, or if there is a change in your family’s size, please contact us so that appropriate adjustments can be made.
*If your family has been financially impacted by Covid-19, you may qualify for a fee waiver for the 2020-2021 school year. Proof of qualification for unemployment or proof from your employer stating a lay-off or termination due to Covid-19 will be required.
In the operation of the free/reduced lunch program, no student will be discriminated against because of race, color, national origin, sex, or handicap. Any student who believes that he/she has been discriminated against should write immediately to the Secretary of Agriculture, Washington, D.C. 20250.
Please note that students that qualify for the (free lunch program) will also have their school fees waived. Students that qualify for the (reduced-price lunch) program will still be responsible for paying school fees.
