Will breakfast and lunch be free again this year?

Breakfast and lunch will be provided to all students in 2021-22 at no charge through special funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

There will also be a la carte items for sale at the Middle School and High School ~ students must pay cash or have money on their MySchoolBucks account in order to purchase these. 

DESE has asked that we still have families fill out the free/reduced lunch applications if you think you would qualify, as this information may be helpful in getting additional benefits. This program provides critical funding that benefits all students, and is not limited to just meals. We will have the application ready soon. 

Please reach out to Director of Food Service Jackie Morgan at if you have any questions.

All MHS 9th grade students will be assigned an MPS Chromebook. Rising 9th Graders will receive their MPS Chromebook and charger during new student orientation at Milton High School on Monday, August 30th at 2 pm.  If a student is unable to attend new student orientation, the student will be provided their Chromebook the first day of school.

All MHS 10th-12th graders should "Bring Their Own Device" or borrow an MPS Chromebook for the school year. All details on BYOD can be found here. 

Optional Chromebook InsuranceAll students are highly encouraged to obtain insurance for their school-issued Chromebook for the 2021-22 school year.

If families decline to purchase the insurance for the Chromebook you are responsible for damage beyond reasonable wear and tear as outlined in the Loan Agreement. The cost of insurance is $30/year and it covers unlimited claims with no deductible.

Please click on the following link to purchase insurance for your student. After registering for insurance, you will receive an email that includes an invoice and payment information. If you wish to purchase insurance for another child, you will need to repeat this process. Thank you for considering the purchase of accidental damage coverage for your student’s Chromebook.

Chromebook Loan Agreement: All students and families of students using an MPS Chromebook are required to sign the Chromebook Loan Agreement.  Here are links to the digital Chromebook Loan Agreements: Elementary; Pierce; MHS.
