TEMPORARY FREE MEALS FOR EVERYONE: The Ouachita Parish School Board applied for federal funding and was approved to temporarily extend free meals to ALL students at ALL schools throughout the parish.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? Until December 31, 2020 or until federal funding is exhausted, every child who attends Ouachita Parish schools will be allowed to receive ONE breakfast and ONE lunch per day without charge.
