USDA Extends Nationwide Meal Waiver - Again
Due to a nationwide meal waiver extension from the USDA, Fostoria City Schools will provide free school meals to ALL students enrolled in the Fostoria City School District. The current extension was due to expire Wednesday, September 30, 2020. With the new meal waiver extension, free meals (breakfast and lunch) for ALL FCS students will continue through the end of 2020.
We are asking that families still complete the free and reduced lunch application and turn it in so we can process results before we are required to return to our regular lunch program. The application is available here: https://www.fostoriaschools.org/…/FS_Free-Reduced_Lunch_App…

Our goal at Fostoria City Schools is to ensure the best interest of kids and safely honor the wishes of our community by doing everything reasonably possible to minimize risk and provide a safe, physical return to school for PK-12 students and staff this fall.
Fostoria City Schools is partnered with FinalForms, an online forms and data management service. FinalForms allows you to complete and sign all annual enrollment and athletic participation forms for your students online – it is simple enough you can do it right from your smartphone. FinalForms saves data from year-to-year and season-to-season, meaning that you will never need to enter the same information twice! FinalForms also pre-populates information wherever possible, for each of your students, saving you time. Once you have completed your registration online, you will simply be asked to review and update your information at the beginning of each school year to verify the information is current and sign the forms.
