Breakfast and Lunch Update
Dear DCS Parents
On August 31, 2020, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced the extension of several flexibilities allowing participating schools to serve free meals to all children into the fall months. This unprecedented move will help ensure children have access to nutritious food during the COVID-19 pandemic. Effective immediately, DeSoto County School District is offering FREE lunch and breakfast (at participating schools) to all of our students. Regardless of your child’s current eligibility status, ALL students will eat for free until December 31, 2020.

Due to the temporary status of these flexibilities, DeSoto County School District Office of Child Nutrition will not be issuing refunds on accounts until January 2021. Also, if you have not already done so, please complete the meal benefit application for the 2020-2021 school year at This information will carryover into January and assist in providing other opportunities such as this in the future.
We are very excited to offer nutritious meals to our students at no cost and we ask you encourage your student to eat with us daily!
If you have any questions, please contact Alex Hallmark, Director of Child Nutrition, at

School Lunch

For students returning to traditional school, to help with social distancing, please pay for your child's lunch using the online pre-pay system. If this is not an option for your family, please place your check or cash in an envelope with your child's name and grade. Each child at our school will need their own envelope. Students will turn their envelope in to the cafeteria in the mornings. This will help with social distancing during our lunch periods.

Thank you for working with us to keep our children safe.

WiFi Access at Lake Cormorant Middle School

We have increased the signal strength of all DeSoto County Schools WiFi systems. This will give students who need Internet the ability to sit in the parking lot of any school and use our WiFi. They need to login to the Guest WiFi network. There is no password needed. Filtering is being done but not at the same level. We have tested all of the applications used in school and they all work.

Students who know how to login will be able to login to the regular school WiFi as they do when they are in class.

Students who do not have any access to technology or internet should call the school Tuesday through Thursday with questions they might have.
