Solon Schools participate in the federally subsidized National School Meals Program that allows children from families meeting certain income guidelines to receive free or reduced price meals. Application forms are updated annually. You must fill out the Iowa Eligibility Application and have it approved, not just the school fee waiver application, to receive free or reduced meals. The Iowa Eligibility Application form is available in the school offices.
Parent notification system
The Solon Community School District will once again be utilizing a parent notification system during the 2011-12 school year. We will be utilizing a new vendor, School Messenger Notification System, to notify parents and staff members information for weather-related school and activity dismissals, late starts or cancellations by phone, email and at a later date optionally via text message. The district’s primary method to report school closings and delays is local television and radio station announcements. The School Messenger Notification System will be a secondary public announcement. Parents and guardians do not have to do anything to receive communications through this new system as we are pulling information from our parent-student information system, PowerSchool. All SCSD parents/guardians will receive a test phone call and email on or around 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 23. If parents/guardians need to change contact information before or after Aug. 24, please use the e-registration process or contact the appropriate building office so that we may update our records. Questions about the notification system should be directed to Matt Townsley, Director of Instruction & Technology at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 319-624-3401 ext. 1352.
