Visit Murray City School District’s website for more information.


IMPORTANT: You only have to fill out ONE application for ALL your students attending any schools within the Murray City School District, EVERY year.

Parents, check the table below to see if your student qualifies for reduced or free school meals:

There are 2 ways to apply:

To access the online Free & Reduced Meal application in Aspire you must have an ASPIRE Parent Account

Please read all the instructions on the downloaded application form, complete it, and submit to the District Office (during the summer) or the school office before school starts. These applications are processed in the order they are received.


When parents submit an application for free or reduced-price meal benefits, they are notified by mail when the student has qualified. Please call only if you do not receive notification within 10 days.
Please send payment with your child until you have received a letter of notification from the district office. Full price is charged until the application is processed.

  • The benefits do not start until the application has been approved. If a student goes through the cafeteria line before the application has been approved, he/she will be charged full price for their meal.
  • When a student qualifies for free meals, this includes breakfast and lunch.
  • Reduced pricing for students is .30 cents for breakfast and .40 cents for lunch.
  • Use ONE Free and Reduced Price School Meals Application for all students in your household. Paper applications are available at the school. Those applications can be turned in to the district office any time after August 1st. If possible, please turn the application in early to insure benefits are in place prior to the first day of school. There is an extremely high volume of applications received once school begins which can cause up to a 10-day delay in processing your application. Please remember that you are responsible for paying full price for your student’s meal until the application is processed.
