Nebraska City Public Schools is participating in the USDA’s waiver which allows schools to operate the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) for School Year 2021-2022. 

What this means for you:

Your student will receive meals at no cost for the entire 2021-2022 school year.

Please complete the free/reduced income eligibility application that is available on our website or at any of the school buildings.  Although your student will be receiving meals at no cost, completion of the application is important for the following reasons:

  • P-EBT Benefits:  Households may be eligible for Pandemic-EBT benefits through the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. P-EBT benefits are based in part on eligibility for Free and Reduced-Price meals. 
  • Fee Waivers and Health Insurance:  Student Free and Reduced-Price meal eligibility can be shared with other programs (with parental consent) for the purposes of fee waivers, scholarships, Medicaid and SCHIP. 
  • School Benefits:  Your school receives State and local funding based on the number of students eligible for Free and Reduced-Price meals.


Important:  Your student(s) will continue to receive meals at no cost for the 2021-22 school year regardless of the eligibility determination of your household’s SY2021-22 application.
