September 9, 2020Free Meals Available to All Students (AZ and NV)

We are excited to announce that we will be offering free breakfast and lunch to all students starting September 14!

In accordance with a recent USDA announcement, Legacy campuses are now able to provide free meals through the end of December.

As a reminder, breakfast and lunch will be provided at our grab-and-go meal stations outside the front office. Please note that the grab-and-go meal options are cold options. However, we now have cold AND hot meals available for students who are learning in-person.

If you are picking up a grab-and-go meal, please note that we can serve any child from ages 1-18. They do not need to be a Legacy student. If a younger sibling is in the car, we can feed them too!

Also, don’t forget that we have lunches available on half-day Wednesdays in Arizona for all students.

We are glad to have this opportunity to make sure every child receives the meals they need and we encourage our families to come pick up grab-and-go meals! 

If you were considering applying for free and reduced-price meals, please still fill out an application by visiting the TITAN School Solutions Family Portal, as our funding is directly tied to the total number of applicants.

Your application will allow the Department of Education to determine Legacy Traditional School’s eligibility for Title 1 funding, which could provide your schools with additional financial assistance, to improve reading and math instruction. The resources acquired through this program were also designed to help students having difficulties with reading by providing funds for extra academic help.

Funds will be utilized to add highly qualified reading and math teachers and paraprofessionals to the Legacy Traditional School teams. Historically, our campuses have also used funds to purchase new technology, and provide additional tutoring and support to students, as well as to offer teachers additional professional development opportunities.
