Children may also qualify for free/reduced lunches.  If your child(ren) qualified for free or reduced-price meals at the end of last school year, you must submit a new application for this school year in order to avoid an interruption in meal benefits.  And, as a reminder, these forms can be submitted at any time throughout the school year should your income change.

You only need to fill out one form per family (not per child).  All application forms are confidential, and should be returned to:  

  • Dan Kennedy, Principal, Lawrence-Nelson Public Schools, PO Box 368, Nelson, NE 68961-0368.
  • Julie Studnicka, Principal, Sandy Creek PK-Elementary School, 30671 Hwy 14, Fairfield, NE 68938. 
  • Jason Searle, Principal, Sandy Creek Middle School & High School, 30671 Hwy 14, Fairfield, NE 68938.

Download the application for 2022-2023 linked HERE.

You will be given a paper copy at the beginning of the school year. 


Please note new forms come out annually on or around July 1st.

Form instructions can be found here. 


If you disagree with your free/reduced lunch status, you should talk to school officials. You also may ask for a hearing by calling or writing to: Julie Otero, Supt. of Schools, South Central NE USD #5, 30671 Hwy 14, Fairfield, NE  68938 or call toll-free at 1.877.726.2151 or by email at jotero@southcentralusd.us
