    School Meals for 2022-23

    August 12, 2022 - Over the last two years, SSD and school districts across the country were able to provide free meals to students due to the USDA waivers associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Meals will be charged according to a student’s free, reduced, or paid meal eligibility status during the 2022-23 school year.
