Youth Fee Waiver Scholarship Policy

Fee Waiver Scholarships are available for certain activities (designated in the activity description) for children who qualify. The Emporia Recreation Center will follow the  guidelines used by USD253 to determine the qualifications for free or reduced price meals. Those who reside in the USD253 school district and are enrolled in Kindergarten through tenth grade, may apply for a fee waiver by contacting the Emporia Recreation Main Office. Those eligible for free lunches will pay 25% of the activity, and those with reduced lunches will pay 50% of the cost of the activity (Tackle Football and Youth Soccer will be 50% and 75%). All fee waiver participants are limited to six activities per year (August through July). Your 2019/2020 Food Service Eligibility letter must be shown at time of registration to receive the discount. To obtain a current copy of your eligibility letter, contact USD253 Food Services at 620-341-2382. If you register your child without proof of this letter, you will be charged full price. The letter must be presented at registration to receive discount. No refunds will be given after registration date.
