With the expiration of USDA waivers on June 30, students in the Indian River School District will no longer receive free meals in school cafeterias. Beginning with the start of the 2022-23 school year in September, food service at all schools will resume pre-pandemic operations.
Students at all IRSD schools will be required to pay for breakfast and lunch unless they qualify for the Federal Free and Reduced Price Lunch Program. Meals can be paid for by cash or check, or by using the TITAN Family online portal at https://family.titank12.com/.
Parents/guardians wishing to request free or reduced price meals for their children are encouraged to submit a Meal Benefit Form to the District Nutrition Services Department prior to the start of the school year. This form is available on the TITAN Family Portal, on the district website at irsd.net or at the child’s school. For more information, contact the child’s school or the IRSD Department of Nutrition Services at (302) 436-1000. A household can apply for allowances at any time during the school year.
The 2022-2023 school year begins Tuesday, September 6 for students in kindergarten, grades 6 and 9, and Howard T. Ennis School (excluding preschool). The first day of school for students in grades 1-5, 7-8, and 10-12 will be Wednesday, September 7. Preschool programs, including Howard T. Ennis, will begin on Monday, September 12.
