Buckingham County Preschool, Buckingham Primary,

Buckingham Elementary, and Buckingham Middle School

We are pleased to inform you that Buckingham County Preschool, Buckingham Primary, Buckingham Elementary, and Buckingham Middle School will be participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for 2019-2020 School Year.

What does this mean for you and your children attending the school(s) identified above?

Great news for you and your students!  All enrolled students of Buckingham County Preschool, Buckingham Primary, Buckingham Elementary, and Buckingham Middle School are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of the 2019-2020 school year.  No further action is required of you.  Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application.

If your child(ren) transfer(s) from a CEP to a non-CEP school within Buckingham County Public Schools and the student is not eligible for free meals by direct certification, a household income application for free and reduced-price meal benefits must be completed and submitted to the school within 10 days of enrollment in the new school.  An eligibility determination will be made and the parent will be notified. BCMS Second Chance Breakfast BCMS will continue the Second Chance Breakfast for the 2019-2020 school year. Second Chance Breakfast is a full school breakfast served between 1st and 2nd periods. Students can purchase breakfast from a special mobile cart and eat in their 2nd-period class. Click on the link below for further details BCMS Second Chance Breakfast Flyer
