  • Haverhill High School – Free and Reduced Lunch Forms



    Good Evening,

    HHS is looking to update our records in an effort to provide better supports for our scholars.  Attached to this email you will find free/reduced lunch forms.  While these forms can provide reduced and no cost breakfast and lunch there are so many more school based opportunities that your child may be eligible to receive reduced costs.


    • All children in households receiving benefits from MA SNAP, MA TAFDC or specific categories of Medicaid  are eligible for free meals.
    • Foster children that are under the legal responsibility of a foster care agency or court are eligible for free meals. Whether placed by the State child welfare agency or a court, in order for a child to be considered categorically eligible for free meals, the State must retain legal custody of the child.
    • Children participating in their school’s Head Start program are eligible for free meals.
    • Children who meet the definition of homeless, runaway, or migrant are eligible for free meals.
    • Children may receive free or reduced price meals if your household’s income is within the limits on the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines. Your children may qualify for free or reduced price meals if your household income falls at or below the limits on this chart attached.

    Even if your child claims they do not eat lunch it is still important that every year this form is filled out.  This process is used to determine eligibility for reduced fees in many other school based programs;

    – Athletic Fees

    – SAT and AP exam fees

    – All school based programs and opportunities

    Please send your child in with these forms and have your child hand them into the main office if you meet any of the criteria in the attachments.

    Q and A:

    1. How much will this count toward their final semester 1 grade?
    – Each HHS department has calculated the value of their exam.  Please reach out to your child’s teacher.

    2. Will breakfast and lunch be served? 
    – Breakfast will be served from 7:00 – 7:25.  Following the finals scholars will be able to go into the cafeteria snack bar line and receive a grab and go lunch.

    3.  What is the process for making up a test if my child misses school?
    – Finals must be taken on the day they are scheduled.  In the rare circumstances that a child will miss their final a parent needs to contact their child’s Assistant Principal.

    4.  Will the Tutoring Center be open during finals?
    – The Tutoring Center is closed during finals. It will be open to select students with scheduled appointments.

    5.  Will the late bus be running? 
    – The late bus will not be running.

    6.  Will Night School and Gateway programs run?
    – Night School and Gateway will run.  Gateway program start time will change to 2:30 January 15 – January 17.

    7. What is the cell phone procedure?
    – Cell phones are not permitted to be used at anytime during the testing session(s).  Scholars will be asked to keep them away for the two hour window and leave them in the classroom if they need to leave the classroom.  This is part of a protocol to ensure that scholars are not able to share answers or look them up.

    8.  What if my child finishes early?   
    – If your child finished their final early they are expected to remain in the classroom and work quietly until everyone has finished.  We encourage them to bring a book to read,
    study for upcoming final(s), and/or complete any end of the semester work they are making up.

    9.  What if my child is in a full year course?
    –    Scholars in full year courses which include Advanced Placement (AP), EMT and some CTE classes will have class during their assigned period.

    10.  May I call and dismiss my child? 
    – We respectfully ask that you do not dismiss your child during class time.  We want to be respectful of all scholars and allow them uninterrupted time to complete their final.

    11.  What if my child has a study during on of the periods?
    – If your child has a study they will be encouraged to make up work or study for future final(s).  Check your child’s SchoolBrains grade book and encourage them to talk to their
    teachers and see if they can complete any makeup work to demonstrate mastery of the standard(s).
