Free and reduced lunch students: Please go onto Jeffco Connect to ensure the fee has been adjusted properly, If the fee has not been adjusted properly, bring the letter you received for enrollment in the program and take it to the financial secretary the night of the event. If you still need to apply for free and reduced lunch, go to this website for more information and scroll to the very bottom to begin application process. PLEASE make sure you select YES on the permissions option to share the information with the school. If you receive SNAP, FDPIR or TANF benefits, this application process still must be completed as well for fees to be adjusted.

Jeffco Connect (where you pay student fees) isn’t set up to be able to accept partial payments and GMHS doesn’t have the ability to manage a payment system. If you absolutely can’t afford the fee, please do come to family night because we will be discussing additional options to ensure everyone can participate in the program.
