Meals Consent Form for school closure past March 27th

All kids can eat for free - our enrolled students will have theirs delivered.

Forms need to be received for ANY delivery - food or materials. It is consent for any staff member to go to their homes during this time to deliver these items.

Feel free to include this as an attachment in your emails to parents/students for them to complete and get back to us.

Any enrolled students of Kelliher School will get the meal/material deliveries. Students of any other school who live in the area can still receive lunches. Those families would need to sign up and pick up the meals, they won't be delivered.


  • Kid 1 lives in Northome and goes to Kelliher School = is a resident of Northome so can get meals from Northome if they choose, but since a student of Kelliher and can receive meals from Kelliher, of which will be delivered to their home along with materials - they need to return Consent Form to us
  • Kid 2 lives in Kelliher and goes to Northome = is a resident of Kelliher School and can receive meals from Kelliher - they need to sign up daily/weekly and pick up the meals at Kelliher School

Anyone who doesn't want any meals delivered should call us so we can note/plan accordingly.

All school meals under these programs are free of charge to anyone even if they don't qualify for free/reduced meals.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks again for your continued patience through this!





Due to social distancing, Kelliher School is cancelling the "Taste of Kelliher" scheduled for April 18, 2020. The money raised from that event funded the Kelliher Alumni Scholarship.

Kelliher seniors need your help! There is no way for us to have another gathering or to sell products door-to-door. So...we need your donations! Please consider mailing a donation for the Kelliher Alumni Scholarship. We hope to raise enough money to award the same amount as we gave last year. If we do that, it would be awesome! Any money over and above that amount will be added to the principal in the Alumni Scholarship account.

Please share this with other Kelliher Alumni. I know we have many generous and supportive community members, and we appreciate your continued support.

Other options for parents in the Red Lake or Ponemah area is to contact your local community center or tribal programs for school based meals and/or wifi access.
