The Free and Reduced-Price School Meals Family Application should be returned by all families, even those not wishing to participate each year with all your students listed. We ask this for several reasons:
- Guidelines may change and an application could potentially qualify under new guidelines,
- Noble Public Schools’ federal funding for other programs is based on these applications,
- Noble Public Schools’ charge policy will allow students to charge up to $30.00 in the cafeteria for lunch and breakfast meals. The district will communicate with the student and parent/guardian when a student is approaching and/or exceeded this amount. Once a student has exceeded this amount, the student may be served an alternate meal.
The application also contains Frequently Asked Questions and contains the Family Income Guidelines for Eligibility for the reduced school meals. If you have any questions regarding the application, please do not hesitate to call Kris Fipps at (405) 872-5690. Again, your applications and responses will be kept confidential.

The Noble Public Schools’ Local Wellness Policy is a written document that guides Noble Public Schools (NPS) efforts to establish a school environment that promotes students’ health, well-being, and ability to learn.
The wellness policy requirement was established by the Child Nutrition and Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Reauthorization Act of 2004 and further strengthened by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. This act requires that each local educational agency (LEA) participating in the National School Lunch Program and/or School Breakfast Program to develop a wellness policy.
The Noble Independent School District recognizes the important role that schools play in the development of children’s lifelong health habits, their ability to learn, and their overall well-being. Schools can improve the health of students not only by educating them about the importance of healthy behaviors, but also by implementing policies that promote those behaviors.
Therefore, the District establishes the following policy to promote the health and wellness of students and staff and to ensure its schools comply with those standards established by federal and state law. Specifically, this policy requires all schools in the District to:
- Allow parents, students, and representatives of the school food authority, physical education teachers, school health professionals, the school board, school administrators, and the general public to participate in the development, implementation, review, and update of the school wellness policy.
- Establish nutrition guidelines that meet or exceed the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) school meal requirements and the nutrition standards for competitive foods and beverages.
- Create goals for nutrition promotion and education, physical activity and physical education, and other activities that promote student health.
- Adopt a plan to ensure the policy is properly implemented, regularly assessed, and periodically updated

Noble Public Schools will allow students to charge up to $30.00 for a reimbursable meal at lunch and/or breakfast. This amount will be communicated to students, parents/guardians, and child nutrition supervisors. Once a student has exceeded this amount, the student may be served an alternate meal. In addition, the district will do the following:
- Inform the student and parent/guardian that they are approaching or exceeding the determined amount, that the alternate meal is applicable to lunch meals only, will continue until unpaid balance is below the determined amount, and will be charged at the student’s current rate.
- Train the District’s Child Nutrition Department on the Unpaid Meal Charge Policy and proper protocol so the alternate meal is presented in a non-discriminating manner.
