Wayzata High School


Application for Educational Benefits

Starting in the 2023-24 school year, one daily school breakfast and one daily school lunch will be fully-funded for all students under the Free School Meals Bill. The district's meal program and style of service will remain very similar to previous offerings. Second meals/entrees, a la carte, and adult breakfast and lunch will be available for purchase. It is important to create and maintain a meal account for your student(s) as they must have money in their accounts to make additional purchases. 

Even though one daily lunch and breakfast will be offered free to students through this new funding, completing the Application for Educational Benefits may qualify your family for other discounts such as: 

  • Reduced fees for school photography packages
  • Reduced district activity fees
  • Reduced internet fees
  • Reduced fees to local zoos and museums
  • Discounted cell phone rates through mobile phone providers

We encourage families to apply for Educational Benefits if they think they might qualify.
