The free and reduced lunch application is now available. Your current status will have a grace period of 30 days when school starts. There are NO paper applications as everything is online, if you don't have access to a computer or smartphone, you can use a computer at campus during summer hours.
**If you have students at both schools, Rowlett Elementary Academy and Rowlett Middle Academy, only fill out one application, putting them on the same one. Please include ALL household members, even if they don’t attend Rowlett Academies. **If you have students that attend a Manatee County school, you will need to fill out a separate application for them through the county’s website.
To make paying for lunch easier, please use to add money to your student’s account. It is free to register. Make sure to go to WILLIAM MONROE ROWLETT ACADEMY, not Manatee District Schools. Our prices may change due to the rise in food costs. Menus are subject to change with no notice due to the availability of food items.  Please watch for updates in Bloomz and on our website for more information.
