  • During the 2021-2022 school year, meals are free for all students.
  • Rivendell Academy Free and Reduced Breakfast and Lunch Program – You may obtain a free/reduced lunch application from Angel Parkin.  By qualifying for free or reduced lunch, your child will either receive a free breakfast and lunch, or those qualifying for reduced will receive a free breakfast and lunch.  Students and staff are not made aware of which students are receiving a free or reduced lunch and those students qualifying receive a Personal Identification Number (PIN) just like all students. This free and reduced breakfast and lunch information is kept confidential.
