Alexander County Schools announced its updated free and reduced eligibility guidelines for families unable to pay the full price of meals served in the schools through the National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program. The federal guidelines are used to determine eligibility for family-size gross income. Children from families who currently receive SNAP, TANF or Work First benefits should receive a letter from the school nutrition office regarding direct certification. If you receive these benefits and do not receive a letter, please contact Kathy Caudle at 828-632-7001 ext. 211. Families whose gross income is below the figures shown above are eligible for free or reduced priced meals and need to complete an application. A link to the electronic application and a parent letter can be found by clicking the menu icon at the top of the page.
The Alexander County School System is in the process of reviewing its website to ensure compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act. If you have questions or concerns regarding the accessibility of the website or if you are unable to access a page or document on the website, you may contact the Communications Department via email at email@example.com or by phone at 828-632-7001.
Parents...please plan to use multiple communication sources for weather-related information over the next few days. The school system will continue to use the automated call system to alert parents of school delays, dismissals, and cancellations. In the event you do not receive a call, you should also check the district website, district social media, WACB AM 860 radio, or Breaking News with the Taylorsville Times.
The likelihood that all surrounding school systems will also be making calls during the same timeframe is extremely high. This could overload phone lines and cell towers. In addition, schools may not have all student data updated with the call system since we are only in the third week of school.
Thank you for your cooperation.
