Important School Breakfast and Lunch Information

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced recently that it is returning to pre-pandemic rules requiring families to apply for free and reduced lunch, rather than allowing all K-12 students to receive free meals.

Families must once again apply for the income-based free and reduced meals for the 2022-23 school year.

Again, it means that beginning this school year, all students will no longer automatically receive free breakfast and lunch.

Meal prices will remain the same as they were pre-pandemic:

  • Elementary Breakfast – 80 cents
  • Elementary Lunch – $1.75
  • Secondary Breakfast – $1.00
  • Secondary Lunch – $2.00
  • Reduced Breakfast – 30 cents
  • Reduced Lunch – 40 cents

Families can apply for Free/Reduced meals now for the upcoming 2022-23 school year. ***YOU MUST APPLY TO RECEIVE MEAL BENEFITS.

  • Free/Reduced meal applications are available at the District Office, at all schools, or online using your Skyward login at skystu.jordan.k12.ut.us

Also, to help meal service in our schools run as smoothly as possible, we remind you to put money in your student’s lunch account before the new school year starts.

Thank you for helping us get the 2022-23 school year off to a nutritious and successful start in our schools and cafeterias.

For more information regarding school breakfast and lunch, we invite you to listen to the latest episode of the Superintendent’s podcast the “Supercast” using the links or media player below.


Truth in Taxation

The Jordan School District Board of Education will hold a Truth in Taxation hearing on Tuesday, August 2 at 6 p.m. at Riverton High School to consider increasing taxes. This will be an opportunity for public comment on the tax increase.

  • Why Raise Taxes?
  • The money will be used for teacher and staff pay.
  • The money will provide additional supports for teachers in the classroom.
  • Property taxes are not adjusted for inflation and the District’s operating costs continue to rise each year.

The tax increase will amount to $43 per year per $100,000 home value. That is approximately $22 a month on a home valued at $600,000.

Jordan works hard to use resources efficiently and to provide a world-class education for students and a supportive work environment for all employees.
