The waivers that allowed all schools in Natchitoches Parish to provide free breakfast and lunch during the Covid-19 pandemic have been lifted. NSU Elementary Lab School and NSU Middle Lab School will revert to their NON-CEP status because of this change. Beginning in August, students who attend these schools will be charged for their meals.
All other Natchitoches Parish Schools will keep their CEP status for the 2022-23 school year.
Applications for free or reduced-price meals are available on the district website. If interested in applying for free or reduced-price meals, visit https://www.npsb.la/page/childnutrition-program.
