Online Meal Application-LAUSD (Click Here)

<font color = green><a href="https://www.applyforlunch.com/Application"_blank"><font color = red>Online Meal Application-LAUSD (Click Here)</a> Dear Parents and Guardians,

It is critical to the instructional budget of VNMS that all families complete a meal application. Whether a family qualifies for a free or reduced cost meal is not important. What is important is that the meal application is completed. VNMS lost close to $200,000 due to the fact that a low percentage of families completed meal applications last year.

Thank you in advance,

Manuel Diaz, Principal
