2020 Back To School Welcome Video

USDA Food and Nutrition Service has provided a waiver extending the Summer Food Service Program until December 31, 2020, or earlier if the funding runs out.   Until that time, this means that free breakfast and lunches will be provided to students no matter what their payment type.

It is still important to complete the “Application for Educational Benefits” as soon as possible.  Mt. Iron-Buhl School District receives additional educational funds for completed and approved “Application for Educational Benefits” forms for free or reduced meals. Please contact the school office, if you have any questions.
