Sand Creek Community Schools is excited to offer free breakfast and lunch to all students for the 2023/2024 school year thanks to the Michigan Healthy School Meals Program! Even though meals will be provided for free, it is important for families to continue sharing household income information in order for our schools to receive full access to federal and state funding for educational programs that our students are entitled to.
The Education Benefit Form helps your school with important funding and without this information, Sand Creek Community Schools could lose important state funding for educational programs that our students are entitled to. These supplemental grants and programs have the potential to offer supports and services for our students including, but not limited to:
Instructional staff (ex. Reading Interventionists, Math Tutors, Academic & Behavior Aids)
Teaching supplies and materials
Counselors and Social Workers
Professional Learning for staff
Parent and Community engagement supplies and activities
Why is Sand Creek Community Schools requesting financial information?
The School Meals and Summer EBT Application determines eligibility of a student or household. The total count of eligible students is used to determine the funding amounts that will be made available to a school. The more forms returned the better.
Can I apply online?
Yes! This is the easiest way for you to complete the application process. You are encouraged to complete an online application instead of a paper application if you are able. The online application has the same requirements and will ask for the same information as the paper application. Please go to: https://sandcreek.familyportal.cloud/ and click on: Apply for Benefits.
Can I use a paper application instead of applying online?
Although applying online is fast and secure, you can send a paper application if you want. To request a form you may contact:
