Children need healthy meals to learn. Baugo Community Schools offers healthy meals every school day.

We encourage families who are struggling to meet expenses due to the loss of a job or reduction in work hours to apply for the National School Lunch Program's free and reduced-price lunch. The application is easy to fill out (one per household) and it includes a place to indicate that you also want to apply for textbook assistance.   Application must include  GROSS income (before taxes, insurance, etc) for all members in the household whether they are related to you or not.  

Please make sure to fill out only one form (application will be available after July due to state regulations) per household, even if the children are in different schools. You must mark the textbook section to be eligible for textbook reductions and sign the form in the textbook section. Free or reduced textbook eligibility will substantially reduce your textbook cost. You may still be required to pay some materials fees.

We cannot approve an application that is not complete, so be sure to fill out all required information. Return the completed application to: Baugo Community Schools, 29125 County Road 22 West, Elkhart, Indiana, 46517. If you have other questions or need help, call 574-293-8583 or [email protected] . Si necesita ayuda, por favor llame at teléfono: 574-293-8583. Si vous voudriez d'aide, contactez nous au numero: 574-293-8583.
