St. Michael Lutheran School Parent/Student Handbook
Hot lunches are available to children through Portage Public
Schools. All hot lunches meet Michigan nutritional standards for
school lunch programs. We also participate in the Federal
Free/Reduced Lunch Program, so families who qualify for
“reduced” meals pay a reduced fee and would be free for those
who qualify. These families will need to complete a simple
application for that program. Federal Free/Reduced Lunch
Program applications are available in the school office (and
must be completed annually). Hot Lunch
menus will be sent home
each month for the following month’s lunches. Lunch money must
be returned by the date stated on the
Snow Day Closings
If the educational programs must be closed due to bad weather
or other adverse circumstances, notice will be given over radio

Childcare: CFK will close whenever Curious Kids, the
Portage Public School child care center, closes.
SMLS and Preschool: SMLS will close whenever Portage
Public Schools close.
