USDA Food and Nutrition Service has provided a waiver extending the Summer Food Service Program until December 31, 2020, or earlier if the funding runs out. Until that time, this means that free breakfast and lunches will be provided to students no matter what their payment type.
It is still important to complete the “Application for Educational Benefits” as soon as possible. Mt. Iron-Buhl School District receives additional educational funds for completed and approved “Application for Educational Benefits” forms for free or reduced meals. Please contact the school office, if you have any questions.

Public Comments at School Board Meetings
Beginning in February 2021, members of the public who wish to speak at school board meetings during the "Comments from Visitors" section of the meeting may do so either in person at the meeting location or via Zoom. Individual comments are limited to 3 to 5 minutes. If you wish to speak to the board, please contact Jeanne Sopp prior to the meeting at firstname.lastname@example.org or 218-749-8130 ext 1105 with your name, the topic you wish to address, and your choice to speak in person or via Zoom.
Due to the pandemic and the need to comply with social distancing and meeting room capacity limits, arrangements will be made for in-person visitors to enter the room one-at-a-time when called upon. In-person visitors are required to wear masks in the building. Visitors who are going to address the board via Zoom will likewise be called upon by the Clerk.
If a group of parents, staff, or community members wishes to be heard on the same topic, consider choosing a spokesperson to represent the group.
