Tucumcari Public School officials received good news recently when they were notified that students would not have to wait until November for free lunches.
Free lunches are now available to all students under the New Mexico Free Lunch program. Students will need to have their ID cards scanned when they go through the lunch line to comply with Public Education Department regulations.
Parents will receive a letter from the schools stating their eligibility status, but this is for accounting purposes only. Regardless of eligibility status, all students may receive free lunches.
