Letters To The Editor

Dear Editor

I would like to comment on an article I read in your paper dated Aug. 18, regarding the Lehighton School Board's attempt to acquire another grant based on the number of children on the school lunch programs.

Per the article there are currently enrolled 44 percent of children in the middle school and 32.7 percent in the high school that meet the guidelines for the state's free or reduced lunch program. Under the National School Lunch Act, free meals are provided for students from families with income below 130 percent of the federal poverty level.
