Lunch Menus & Money graphic

Lunch Menus & Money

Since the start of the pandemic in 2020, Affton School District has provided free meals for all students through funding provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. That funding has expired, so free meals will no longer be available to all Affton students in the 2022-23 school year.

Students are welcome to bring a lunch from home. Please note drop-offs by meal services (i.e., Uber Eats, DoorDash, or similar) or by family members are not allowed.

Free & Reduced Meal Application

Affton School District participates in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. This allows families the opportunity to apply for Free and Reduced Price Meal Benefits. Applications are available as a fillable PDF on our website, on the Parent Portal under Optional Forms, or paper forms are available at the District Administration Office or the School Principal’s Office. Income information is treated very confidentially.

Families who submitted and were approved for free/reduced meals in the 2021-22 School Year will carry over that status for the first 30 days of the 2022-23 School Year. All families must reapply starting July 2022.

First Day of School Album

Once again, we will be compiling a First Day of School album featuring our students, teachers, and team members. Send your photo (one per student, please) to communications@afftonschools.net, or DM to @AfftonSchools on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

School Supply Lists

For the 2022-23 school year, our schools will be providing supplies for students in grades K-8. Each day, students will need to bring their Chromebook, a mouse, headphones, and a reusable water bottle.

If additional supplies are needed for a specific class, the teacher will let you know. AECC and AHS will also communicate with their families about supplies their students need.

If you are in need of assistance with school supplies, please contact our District Social Worker, Ashley O'Daniel, by phone at 314-633-5928 or email
