Based on your annual earnings, you may be eligible to receive the Earned Income Tax Credit from the Federal Government (Federal EITC). The Federal EITC is a refundable federal income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families. The Federal EITC has no effect on certain welfare benefits.

Attention Grant School parents: On January 8th, Grant School will be starting a program called "Breakfast after the bell." Your student will now be able to get breakfast at their first recess. If you qualify for free or reduced price lunch you can also receive those benefits at breakfast.
The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.
