Dear Parent/ Guardian:

There will be an option available to apply for free or reduced meals online for the 2022-2023 school year using our Wordware lunch program. This option will be available starting July 5, 2022.
To access the free/ reduced app, you must first activate your Wordware family account. If you need assistance with activation, please contact Julie Reiff at 402-563-7000 ext. 12270

Once your Wordware account is activated, you are encouraged to complete an online application.

  1. Log in to your Wordware account by going to Enter your username and password.
  2.  Click on the orange “GO” button by the knife/fork icon.
  3.  Click on the blue “Apply for free/ reduced benefits” button.
  4. Click on the blue “Get started” button.
  5.  Fill out your information, and submit your form.

The online application has the same requirements and will ask you for the same information as a paper application. Computers and assistance are available at the CPS Administration office, call 402-563-7060 if you have any questions about the free or reduced meals program.
