Free and Reduced Meal Application

With the new school year starting soon, the Southern Boone School District is urging families to complete the free or reduced meal application as part of the online registration process.

The Federal USDA Waiver that allowed school districts to provide meals at no cost to students has expired. The USDA did NOT extend the Federal Waiver for the upcoming school year.

Parents are asked to fill out the 2022-2023 Free and Reduced Meal Application for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year. The school district is encouraging all families to fill out an application. Even if you think your family won’t qualify, your application can help the school district in many different areas including federal funding and qualifying for grants. Completing an application is the only way to be considered for free or reduced meals.

You can fill out the application online or download and print off a paper copy of the application. You can turn in the completed form to your child’s school office or central office.

If you have any questions regarding free or reduced meals or need assistance with filling out an application, please call Southern Boone Central Office at 573-657-2147.

In the highlights, read about staff and student handbooks, new employee hires and transfers, middle school construction update, Ranken Tech construction project update and more.

The board meeting highlights and previous recaps are available on the school district's website here:
Middle School Construction Project Update
Here is an update on the construction of the expansion and renovation project at Southern Boone Middle School. In the new middle school addition, Prost Builders have installed the classroom cabinets and countertops over the past couple of weeks. The flooring subcontractor has completed all of the classroom flooring and now is working on the flooring in the hallways. Last week, the school district was able to start moving some of the classroom furniture and supplies into the new rooms. This week, the school district's furniture is scheduled to be delivered and begin to be assembled in the new media center and office areas.

In the north building, the old media center renovation has begun. This space will be converted into two new classrooms and storage rooms. In the south building, Prost Builders started hanging the new doors for all of the classrooms last week and are about 90% complete installing cabinets and countertops in the classrooms. This week, the flooring subcontractor will focus on installing the new flooring in the hallways. The school district will start moving classroom furniture back into the classrooms between the old central office and annex area.

Voters in the Southern Boone School District approved the $7.7 million bond issue in April 2021 for the middle school construction project. The project will connect the two buildings with the new addition, which consists of a new main office, science labs, library and vocational area. The project also includes converting the current office and library into additional classrooms, and other much-needed improvements to the middle school.
Fall Sports Informational Parent Meeting

The Southern Boone Athletics Department is preparing for another exciting school year of athletics. Parents are encouraged to attend the Fall Sports Parent Meeting on Sunday, August 7th at 6PM in the high school gym.
