Dear Parent or Guardian:
We are pleased to inform you that Bath County Public Schools will be implementing a new option available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the 2020-2021 school year.
What does this mean for you and your children attending any school in the division?
Great news for you and your students! All enrolled students of Bath County Public Schools are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of the 2020-2021 school year. No further action is required of you. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application.
If you have questions or need help, please contact Rosita Perry at 540-839-2722. Sincerely,
Director of School Nutrition
