Elementary and middle schools in Wilkes County will continue to participate in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the 2017-18 school year which provides free daily meals for all students in attendance. Our high schools are no longer eligible to participate, so they will be transitioned to the traditional free and reduced lunch program. This program allows eligible students to receive breakfast and lunch meal service either free or at a reduced cost. High school students not eligible will be required to pay for their school meals.
