Resources for Students and Families

Given our challenging economic times, more and more families are feeling the pinch.  The area resources listed below may be helpful.

  • Rivendell Academy Free and Reduced Breakfast and Lunch Program – You may obtain a free/reduced lunch application from Angel Parkin.  By qualifying for free or reduced lunch, your child will either receive a free breakfast and lunch, or those qualifying for reduced will receive a free breakfast and lunch.  Students and staff are not made aware of which students are receiving a free or reduced lunch and those students qualifying receive a Personal Identification Number (PIN) just like all students. This free and reduced breakfast and lunch information is kept confidential.
