Mission and Vision Statement

At Hamilton Attendance Center, we believe that all children are capable of learning. Our mission is to provide a positive, yet challenging learning environment where students are given the opportunity to become successful in all areas, preparing them to become productive citizens and have bright futures by achieving their personal goals.

Our vision is to prepare and motivate our students for a rapidly changing world by instilling in them critical thinking skills, a global perspective, and a respect for core values of honesty, loyalty, perseverance, and compassion. Students will have success for today and be prepared for tomorrow. 


Free and Reduced Price Meal Program 

Monroe County School District participates in the USDA National Breakfast and Lunch 

Programs, and meals are available to all students. Some students pay the full 

advertised price, but low and moderate income students may qualify for free or reduced 

priced meals

Parents must fill out a new online application every school year for their 

students to participate in the district's program, even if their students qualified for the 

program last school year. 

Be sure to use an active email address on your student's application in 

order to receive your eligibility letter. Please use the web address below to 

access the 2023-2024 school year free and reduced meal application


There are two ways to qualify

1. If you currently have SNAP(Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program)

TANF(Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) or if you have a foster child, 

your student is eligible for free meals as long as you receive these benefits. 

2. If your household income meets eligibility guidelines, your student can eat free or 

at a reduced price of 40 cents a day for lunch

You can apply for free or reduced price meals by completing the Online Free and 

Reduced Lunch application. Parents must complete one application per household

Online applications will be processed by the MCSD Child Nutrition Program Office, and 

parents will receive a notification with the results of their application within a timely 

manner. New applicants will be responsible for paying full prices for lunch ($2.55 per 

day per student) until their application has been processed

If parents need help with the online application process, they can call the MCSD food 

services office at 662-257-2176 and ask for Mrs. Chism or Mr. Davis 

Parents or families that do not have access to a personal computer or internet 

connection can come to the school's cafeteria office, or can make an appointment to 

come to the MCSD Child Nutrition Office to use a computer.
