Free & Reduced Meal Information
Online free and reduced meal applications are available online at PayPams. A new application must be completed each school year to qualify for free or reduced meals. Your child's eligibility status carries over to the new school year for the first 30 school days, allowing parents time to re-apply. Only one application per household should be submitted and everyone living in the house must be included on the application.
Applications are also available at the Madison County Schools central office after July 1st. Applications will be sent home with each child on the first day of school. Reminder: One application per family even if you have children attending different schools in our system. Your eligibility may be checked at any time during the school year. You may be asked to provide documentation to verify your income.
Application opens on July 1, 2020
