Some schools will receive meals at no charge

The vision of the Hoke County Schools Child Nutrition Team is “Children must be healthy to learn and must learn to be healthy.”  Thanks to a new and exciting federally funded program called Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), students at six Hoke County schools will receive breakfast and lunch at no charge for the 2014-2015 school year.  If your child attends one of the following schools:  Scurlock Elementary, Hawk Eye Elementary, JW McLauchlin Elementary, West Hoke Elementary, West Hoke Middle, or Turlington School, he/she is automatically eligible for meals at no charge.  This includes breakfast, lunch and afterschool snacks.  Parents of students at these schools will not need to complete a meal application.  If your child attends any of the other schools in Hoke County, you must complete a free and reduced meal application.  The meal status for students returning from last school year will rollover for the first 30 days of the new school year.  After 30 days, those students who have not submitted a new application will revert to full paying status and parents will be responsible for any charges incurred.  A new student to Hoke County Schools will be full paying until a meal application is received.  As a reminder, when completing an application, if you have children attending a CEP school and a non-CEP school, please list all students attending Hoke County Schools.  Household size is a determining factor in qualifying for free or reduced price meals.  If you have any questions or concerns, contact the Hoke County Schools Child Nutrition Office at 910-875-4106.
