    Hello FNSBSD Families, Friends, Staff, and Community!

    If a student qualified for benefits during the prior school year and is officially enrolled in the school district on the last day of school, those students will have a thirty-day grace period going into the next school year.  We encourage families to apply as early as possible in July to ensure benefits are available for students when school starts.
