LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Clark County School District announced Wednesday that any child between the ages of 2 to 18 years old will be able to get free school meals.
Some families had been paying for school lunches with the start of the new school year but the district was able to get a waiver extended by the USDA making the school lunches free going forward. Students are already offered free breakfasts.
CCSD released a list of FAQ’s to provide more information on how families can get those free meals during distance learning.
