New Students

  • New students to Coeur d'Alene School district will need to bring money for meals or bring a sack lunch until their family application is processed and approved. Although we have ten working days to process a meal application, our goal is to process your application as soon as possible. Also, new students to the district must have an application on file to eat free or reduced meals, even if their brother or sister has been free.

Applications Are Confidential

  • All information on your application is confidential and will only be used for the meal program, unless you request to release the information. Student computer accounts look identical to cash paying students, so no one can tell what the status of any student is. We respect your privacy.
