The Lincoln County R-III School District will continue the Seamless Summer Lunch program this summer.

In 2012, in response to a growing Free and Reduced population, the R-III District was able to participate in a free summer lunch program funded through the National School Lunch Program. The Seamless Summer Meal program provides nutritiously balanced lunches throughout the summer months to any child up to the age of 18 for free, regardless of income.

Beginning May 28, the R-III district will serve lunches through the Seamless Summer Meal program at Main Street Elementary School from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Lunches will be delivered to the following locations:

Hawk Point Elementary at 10:45 a.m.

Boone and Lincoln at 11:15 a.m.

Ninth Grade Center at 11:45 a.m.

Cuivre Park Elementary at 12:15 p.m.

The R-III District will deliver lunches to these areas for 10 days. Service will be stopped if participation is low after 10 days of service. The program will run through Friday, August 9 and follow the district office calendar. Lunches will not be served on the following days: July 4, July 12, July 19 and July 26.
