 The federal government allowed schools to offer free meals to all students during the pandemic, but Congress did not extend this benefit for the 2022-2023 school year.

Families that are eligible for free and reduced price meals must apply to receive them.

All other students must pay full price Lunch ($3.00) and Breakfast ($1.75)

The online application process for free and reduced price meals is now live and can be accessed on our webpage - Child Nutrition.

Hard copies of the meal application will be available during your back to school event.  However, the online application is the most efficient method to apply for these meal benefits.


For summer reading, we are holding One School, One Book using The Sword of Summer. We have copies in the GSMS front office for students to check out if needed.

Schedule pickup will be on August 4th. Students must be registered and pay all fees by July 29th to pick up their schedule on August 4th. If registration and fees are not handled by June 29th, we can guarantee a schedule until the first day of school.

Pay fees HERE or in the GSMS front office.

Register online HERE using the Snap Code mailed home with your report card.

The GSMS front office is open Monday – Friday from 8am until 4pm during the summer.

Important Update Regarding Our School Meal Program

The federal USDA waivers that have allowed school districts to provide school breakfast and lunch at no cost to students for the past two years is set to expire on June 30, 2022. Unless the USDA extends the federal waiver for the upcoming school year, families who do not qualify for free meals can expect to resume paying full or reduced price for school meals when school resumes on August 9, 2022.

All families are strongly encouraged to complete a free and reduced meal application for the 2022-2023 school year will be available July 1, 2022. Online applications can be completed starting July 1, 2022 on our website under Child Nutrition. If an online application is completed, a household does not have to complete a paper application. 

Paper applications will be sent home with students at the beginning of school.

In addition to determining eligibility for free and reduced-price school meals, school meals applications help our school district allocate vital funding and resources to schools. For this reason, please complete the school meals application.


For many kids, summertime means food, friends and fun.  For families who count on school breakfast and lunch, however, the summer months can be stressful and family food budges have to be stretched.  

Gulf Shores City Schools will provide Free Meals this Summer to Kids and Teens Under 18 (Funded by the USDA).
