Bethel parents will be getting an email from the school district in the coming days about the school meals program. Bethel got additional Federal funding to support free breakfast and lunch because the district opted in to the School Meals Assistance Revenue for Transition program. Unlike last year, Bethel was designated a certain dollar amount that should take the district through the first half of the year. When the funds run out, charges for meals will need to resume. Because the funding won't last, school officials say it's important for families who qualify to complete a free and reduced application.
