Application for the School Fee Waiver & Free/Reduced Lunch

We will be available in the Main Office at Niles West High School Monday through Friday 8:00a.m.-3:00p.m. to accept applications from families who may qualify for an exemption from paying this year's school fee and/or the Free & Reduced Lunch Program. When applying for both fee and lunch, one application is needed per student.

Students who were eligible for free or reduced priced meals at the end of last school year (2017-2018) will continue to receive free or reduced meals only through September 30, 2018.

Parent/Guardian must reapply and be approved for this benefit for the 2018-2019 school year. Those who have not been approved by September 30, 2018 will pay full meal prices.
