UPDATE! Free School Meals

Knox County Schools is excited to announce that beginning on January 4, 2024, students at Powell Elementary School will have access to free breakfast and free lunch each school day for the remainder of the 2023-2024 school year. 

What does this mean for you and your student(s)? All students enrolled at our school will be eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no cost.  While one breakfast and one lunch meal per school will be offered for free, students may still purchase second meals and/or a la carte items; however, please note that charging for these items to a student account is NOT allowed. Students must have cash or funds in their student meal account to purchase second meals or a la carte items.
