Our memorandum of August 31, 2005, which addressed the special needs of schools in the disaster areas created by Hurricane Katrina, allowed schools that are unable to maintain normal accounting systems to serve all meals free to students through September 30, 2005. However, in those schools that have been able to maintain normal accounting procedures and in those schools that are now returning to normal procedures, we have been asked to extend the initial 30 day carry-over of a child’s previous year’s free or reduced priced eligibility in recognition of the significant disruption in normal activities that occur at the start of the school year.
