 All students will now receive free breakfast everyday! Due to Provision 2, breakfast will now be provided to all students free of charge.  We still strongly encourage parents to complete the free/reduced lunch forms as this only includes breakfast meals and not lunch.  Forms will be distributed to your child during the first week of school, or you may fill them out online at the Gilmer County Schools homepage.
