Student Meals.

-Program Extended-

The free breakfast and lunch program will become effective on September 1, 2021, and will be available until May 30th, 2022. The only charges that would be assessed would be for items not served as part of the meal, such as a second carton of milk, or an extra meal taken by the same child.

We will provide breakfast and lunch for all students. We ask that all parents who may be eligible for free or reduced lunch to please fill out a lunch application. These applications help the district qualify for grants from the state and federal governments. Programs such as Title I, Title II, the Rural Small Schools grant and the Achievement Gap Reduction grant all are based on the number of students who qualify for free or reduced lunch. A family of four with combined earnings of $49,000 per year will qualify for reduced lunch.

Welcome to the Butternut School District

The Mission of the Butternut School District is to provide a safe educational environment that inspires our students and prepares them for success in the ever-changing world.


Several factors make our mission possible.


• Primary is the dedication of a staff willing to do whatever it takes to help students be successful through patience and continuing professional development.


• The insight of the Butternut School Board and the support of our district residents help Butternut maintain a high graduation rate.


• Our graduates benefit through the Butternut Community Scholarship, made possible by John and Melissa Besse, by receiving $20,000 to help with post high school education expenses.


• Lastly, average class sizes around sixteen (16) students allow our staff to better attend to individual needs.



I invite you to stop for a visit and find out more about what Butternut School District provides for our students and our future.
