All Parker students receive free lunches through a grant awarded to New Castle Community School Food Service. However, this grant only covers the price of lunches. Textbook rental is not part of this grant.
If you feel you may qualify and wish to receive Textbook assistance, you will need to complete the free and reduced lunch application available in all school offices or online. Those who received a letter from New Castle Food Service notifying them that they were “Directly Certified” do not need to complete an application.
Families approved for textbook assistance are obliged to pay the “Fees” portion of book rental which is $20. This is the portion of book rental the state does not reimburse our school for, however you cannot be subject to collections for non-payment.
For full pay families, if payment in full cannot be made, partial payments will be accepted. Accounts with no payments posted to their account as of December 20, 2019 will be sent for collection. Accounts with a balance at the end of the school year, will be sent for collection June 1, 2020.
Please make Checks or Money Orders payable to Parker Elementary School.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the office.
