Parking Update the Spring-Ford School Police
Moving forward, there should be no parking on any field access roads including access roads to McNelly Stadium. In addition, there should be no parking within McNelly Stadium for members of the band or band volunteers, coaches, or athletes. The only exception includes the RCTV Mobile Production Trailer, Maintenance and Operations Department, and Spring-Ford School Police. As well, there should be no parking under the new High School Expansion Overhang. Please keep in mind that parking is never allowed in marked Fire Lanes or Bus Lanes.

Violation of these parking rules can include code of conduct, traffic citation, vehicle booting and possible towing from the property.

Free & Reduced Lunch Program
Children need healthy meals to learn. Spring-Ford Area School District offers healthy meals every school day. Lunch costs $2.95, in our Elementary Schools (Grades 1-4) and $3.15 in our Intermediate/Middle School, 8th Grade Center, 9th Grade Center and the Senior High School.

Your child(ren) may qualify for free meals or for reduced price meals. Reduced price is $.40 for lunch. This packet includes an application for free or reduced price meal benefits, and a set of detailed instructions. Click here for more information about the Free or Reduced Lunch program.

Please note, even if your application was approved last year, your application is only good for that school year and for the first few days of this school year. You must send in a new application by October 2019. If your application is not received by that date, your child(rens) payment status will revert back to Paid, and you will be responsible for any charges incurred until you re-apply.
