In preparation for the upcoming school year, we encourage you to complete the Application for Free and Reduced Price Meals at www.mymealtime.com/apps by Friday, September 1, 2018. If eligible, your child will receive the following benefits:
• Free or reduced school breakfast and lunch (based on eligibility).
• $5.00 Advanced Placement testing fees (compared to regular fee of $93.00)
• Two free SAT Tests, two free SAT Subject Tests, and two free ACT Tests (over $200 in savings!!)
• Use of a Surface Pro tablet for schoolwork during school year (while supplies last).
This program could also provide the school with hundreds of thousands of dollars in additional funding for academic programs such as after-school tutoring and summer school. We only receive these benefits if qualifying families submit the application before October 1, 2017. However, to avoid disruptions in meal service to students, applications must be received by Friday, September 1, 2017. The earlier you complete the application, the greater the benefits for your student and the school.
We ask that you take a few minutes right now to create a profile on MealTime and fill out the free and reduced application. Please see the attached guide to learn how to create a profile and fill out the application. After you submit the application, you will receive a letter informing you of your eligibility for the program in 7-10 business days. Please do not wait until right before AP exams to submit the application, as we cannot guarantee that it will be processed on time.
You will need your student’s 6 digit student ID number to complete the application. Your student received a handout on the first day of school with their student ID number and PIN. Please make sure your student remembers the PIN; this is the number s/he will use to purchase meals in the cafeteria. We recommend taking a photo on the student’s phone.
PLEASE NOTE: If you previously completed this application on the LAUSD website, you need to fill it out again for El Camino, as we are an independent charter school separate from LAUSD. Also, families of continuing students must fill out a new application each school year as the application changes to reflect new state guidelines.
If you do not have access to Internet at home, you may visit the Admissions Office at the school to use a computer and submit the application. You or your student may also pick up a paper application in the Main Office.
For those families who do not qualify for free meals, you can deposit money to your student’s account on the MealTime website so they do not have to bring cash to school each day.
Thank you and we wish you a very successful school year!
