Dear Parent/Guardian:

We are pleased to inform you that your school is participating in a new federal program available to select schools as part of the National School Lunch Program called the CommunityEligibility Provision (CEP). Our participation means that all students attending Abraham_  LincolnSchool #6 are eligible to receive breakfast and lunch at no chargthroughout thecurrent school year. Therefore, families will not need to complete the federal form,"Application for Free or Reduced Price Meals or Free Milk." However, other

  • educational programs funded by the State of New Jersey require that our school collect similar household information for all students.

In order to collect the information for the State, the New Jersey Department of Education hasdeveloped a Household Information Survey. Please take a moment to complete this form and return it to your child's school. Your participation is essential in order for us to provide the Department of Education with the information it needs to ensure our school will continue to receive critical state funding.

 The surveys must be received no later than October 1stThey should be returned as early as possible, and without marks or cross-outs. Additional information and surveys are available usingthe following linkhttp://www.state.nj.us/education/finance/cep/.

 If you need assistance, please contact National School Lunch Program Coordinator at 973-340-5000 ext 2308.

 Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this important matter.
