Tips for Families 

  • Let the school know when your child will be absent. Attendance affects your child’s learning and grades. 
  • Look at your child’s schoolwork and make sure your child finishes it. 
  • Let the school know if your child has a food allergy or other food-related medical condition, such as diabetes. 
  • Ask the school staff how to apply for free or reduced-price school meals. Schools often have application forms in their main offices. 
  • Always let the school know if your child has a medical or health condition or needs to take medication at school. 
  • Some schools have rules on fasting at school, especially for young children. Talk with the school if your child is in an early childhood or elementary program and will need to fast.
