Letter from Superintendent Barbara Case May 5 2021
General Brown CSD is asking families that have not submitted the annual Free and Reduced Price Lunch (FRPL) form for this year to do so to ensure qualified students will continue to receive meals in the fall of 2021.
Currently, all students in the General Brown Central School District can receive free meals whether attending in-person or remote classes. This USDA funding will continue until the end of this school year. Although parents/guardians do not need to fill out any forms to receive this year’s free meals, once this program ends, only those who qualified and completed the FRPL form will continue to receive the benefit.
Wi-Fi is available in the student parking lot of the General Brown Jr/Sr High School.
Students and staff can join the GBLIONS_GUEST Wi-Fi with their network username and password.
