Does your child need Health Insurance?

How do I apply for free/reduced lunch?
You may apply for Free/Reduced Meal Benefits beginning August 1, 2016 by visiting or the Ascension Parish School Board's website, or by picking an application at any school.

If I qualify, is my child guaranteed a spot?
No. Public Pre-k programs are state and federally funded and income based; therefore, there are limited openings available at each site.

What happens if I don't qualify?
If you don't qualify for a publicy-funded program, paying tuition at a quality rated child care center is an option. The right care and education for your child in these critical years is worth considering. Remember, your choices shape their chances and quality should always be your choice.
