In an effort to support student wellness, Elyria City Schools has opted to provide no cost breakfast to all students in grades K-8. Additionally, Hamilton Elementary & Westwood Campus will operate under the USDA’s Provision 2 program, which will allow students in those buildings to eat lunch for free.

All families are strongly encouraged to complete a free and reduced price lunch form as early as possible in the school year. Even if you don’t believe you will qualify for free and reduced price meals, please complete this form as it helps students and our school district. This process is easy, risk-free and confidential.

Applications can be completed electronically through PaySchools Central. Money can also be pre-loaded to your student(s) account via Pay Schools. You can also print and complete a hard copy of the form from one of the links below. Once complete, please return the form to your child's main office before school begins or during the school year.

Like many institutions across the nation, Elyria Schools and Aramark are managing new supply chain issues.

While we have ample food supplies, sometimes shortages of particular items require us to be flexible in our menu plans. 

While the menus may show certain items on certain days, this could change unexpectedly. We continue to provide great menu choices for breakfast and lunch each and every day.
