Feed Our Kids Backpack Program

The “Feed Our Kids: Rice Lake Backpack Program,” a part of the Boys and Girls Club, is a free
program that provides kid-friendly, non-perishable food for students in kindergarten through
4th grade to eat over weekends and breaks when school meals are not available or when there
may be little or no food to eat. Please consider your family situation to determine if this
program is something your children could benefit from. If the Backpack Program’s free food is
something your family needs, please choose the appropriate link below to access  the registration form:

Reduced Cost Internet

Fast, reliable Internet access at home is an important resource for our students and families. We recognize, however, that for some families the cost of quality internet access is just too much for their budget to bear. Many Internet service providers offer discounted rates for families that qualify for the National School Lunch Program (Free and Reduced Lunch) and other state and federal assistance programs. Additionally, the Wisconsin Public Service Commission has published an Internet Discount Finder tool to help families locate providers that offer discounted services by searching their home address. Linked below are the discounted Internet programs offered by some local service providers along with the PSC's Internet Discount Finder tool that may help you identify other options available to you based on your home address. These links are provided as a resource only and the Rice Lake Area School District cannot guarantee rates and/or program availability.
