Dear Parents/Guardians of the Glennallen and Slana Schools,

The Glennallen and Slana Schools have the opportunity to participate in the Summer Food Service Program. Meals will be provided to all children free of charge who are attending school at the school site. Children who are part of households that receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly foods stamps) benefits, or benefits under the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR), or Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) are automatically eligible to receive free meals.

The Summer Food Service Program will begin retroactive to 8/31/2020, the first day of school. If you have put funds on your student’s account and would like to be reimbursed, please fill out the attached form. You will also be reimbursed for meals that have been purchased from the start of school by filling out this form. You will have the option to keep funds on your students account for extra servings or possible lunch purchases next school year.

Students attending school at the Glennallen Campus during the Trek classes are welcome to participate during the Trek schedule.

Acceptance and participation requirements for the Program and all activities are the same for all regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service. Meals will be provided at the sites and times as follows: Glennallen Campus from 11:00 AM – 12:45 PM and Slana School from 11:00 – 12:30 PM.

If you have any questions, please contact the school where your child attends.
