1. Your child previously attended a school participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) at some point after the start of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, or the child enrolled in kindergarten as a virtual or homeschooled student in school year 2020-2021 or later, and

2. Your child is not attending a National School Lunch Program (NSLP)-participating school due to concerns about COVID-19, and

3. Your child would have been eligible for free or reduced-price meals at their NSLP school if not for their virtual or homeschool status.
