Meal Program

Welcome to school meals!  International Academy of Smyrna together with SLA Management will provide breakfast and lunch options to our scholars for the school year.

Due to the expiration of USDA Covid-19 waivers, school meals are longer free. Beginning in August 2022, families will be responsible for student meal charges.

We encourage all families to apply for free- or reduced-meal benefits online through Infinite Campus. Go to Infinite Campus > More > Meal Benefits. Applications are only valid for one school year, and a new application for your IAS scholar must be submitted each year.

The percentages of qualifying students at a school are used as a measure to secure additional federal funding (Title I) to support students and their education, promote family engagement, and provide additional technology and internet access. Title I funds pay for additional teachers, Parent Centers, additional learning opportunities for students, extra resources, added technology, and more. In addition, confirmed eligibility establishes a number of benefits for individual students, such as no- and low-cost access to technology and internet plans and discounts on camps and some external after school programs.

Complete an application today through Infinite Campus.  If you are unable to access the online portal, please contact Michelle Watley at michelle.watley@iasmyrna.org for additional support.

Lunches from Home

When packing a lunch, water, milk or 100% fruit juices are recommended. Soda is not encouraged. Please provide lunches that do not need to be heated as this poses a liability for the school. Students may purchase milk or juice for $0.75 when packing a lunch from home. Funds must be loaded on your SLA account to purchase milk. Lunches from restaurants are not permitted.
