Carter County Schools will continue offering breakfast and lunch to students in Pre-K-8th grade at no cost during the 2018-19 school year through participating in the Community Eligibility Provision.  Students that are enrolled in the county's four high schools are encouraged to complete the Application for Free and Reduced Priced School Meals.  This application will determine appropriate meal benefits. The Carter County School Nutrition Department will be accepting the Application for Free and Reduced Priced School Meals beginning in August, 2018.  Please contact our office at 423-547-2917 if you have any questions.
