Meals at No Cost Extended

The Bauxite School District is pleased to announce that breakfasts and lunches will be served to all students at NO CHARGE during the 2021 - 2022 school year.   It is not necessary to complete a meal application for free or reduced priced meals as The United States Department of Agriculture has extended meal benefits to all students at this time.   For households who wish to complete a meal application, they are available at all School Campus Offices or you can contact Kristy Ammons @ 501-557-2238.  

These meal benefits do not include a la carte items sold in the cafeteria.  If students wish to purchase items a la carte, they will need to have money for those purchases. 

All adults, e.g., visitors, teachers, support staff members, and administrators of the district must assume the full cost of the meal.
