 The Pasadena Unified School District 
announces its policy to serve nutritious 
meals every school day under the National 
School Lunch Program, School Breakfast 
Program, and/or Afterschool Snack 
Program. The program started July and 
runs through June 30, 2020, children are 
eligible for free or reduced-price meals if the 
household income is less than or equal to the 
federal guidelines.

 Households do not need to turn in an 
application when the household receives 
a notification letter saying that all children 
automatically qualify for free meals when 
any household member receives benefits 
from CalFresh, CalWORKs, or FDPIR. 
Children who meet the definition of foster, 
homeless, migrant, or runaway, and children 
enrolled in their school’s Head Start program 
are eligible for free meals. Contact school 
officials if any child in the household is not 
on the notification letter. The household 
must let school officials know if they do not 
want to receive free or reduced-price meals.

 Applications will be sent to the household 
with a letter about the free and reduced-
price meal program. Households that want 
to apply for meal benefits must fill out one 
application for all children in the household 
and give it to the nutrition office at 740 W 
Woodbury Rd, Pasadena, CA 91103. For a 
simple and secure method to apply, use our 
online application at www.MySchoolApps.
com. Contact Grace Aguilar at 626-396-5852 
X 89371 for help filling out the application. 
The Food & Nutrition Services office will let 
you know if your application is approved or 
denied for free or reduced-price meals.

 Households may turn in an application 
at any time during the school year. If you 
are not eligible now, but your household 
income goes down, household size goes 
up, or a household member starts receiving 
CalFresh, CalWORKs, or FDPIR, you 
may turn in an application at that time. 
Information given on the application will 
be used to determine eligibility and may be 
verified at any time during the school year 
by school officials. The last four digits of 
the Social Security number from any adult 
household or checking that you do not have 
a Social Security number is required if you 
include income on the application.

 Households that receive Special 
Supplemental Nutrition Program for 
Women, Infants, and Children (WIG) 
benefits, may be eligible for free or reduced-
price meals by filling out an application.

 Foster children are eligible for free meals 
and may be included as a household member 
if the foster family chooses to also apply 
for the non-foster children on the same 
application. Including foster children as a 
household member may help the non-foster 
children qualify for free or reduced-price 
meals. If the non-foster children are not 
eligible, this does not keep foster children 
from receiving free meals.

 Your child’s eligibility status from last 
school year will continue into the new 
school year for up to 30 school days or until 
the school processes your new application, 
or your child is otherwise certified for free 
or reduced-price meals. After the 30 school 
days, your child will have to pay full price 
for meals, unless the household receives a 
notification letter for free or reduced-price 
meals. School officials do not have to send 
reminder or expired eligibility notices.

 If you do not agree with the decision or 
results of verification, you may discuss it 
with school officials. You also have the right 
to a fair hearing, which may be requested 
by calling or writing the hearing official: 
Elizabeth Powell, 740 W Woodbury RD, 
Pasadena, CA 91103, 626-396-5852.



What if you could leave your wealth to your children knowing 
it would be protected, for the rest of their lives, from their own 
bad decisions as well as any malicious intent by outsiders? Well, 
you can. 

There are proactive estate planning solutions designed to 
safeguard your adult children’s inheritance. And these planning 
protections aren’t just for the extraordinarily rich—even 
relatively modest amounts of wealth can be squandered or taken 
if not adequately protected. 

Indeed, the planning strategies we describe here can safeguard your child’s inheritance 
from being depleted by events such as a divorce, a catastrophic medical expense, an at-
fault accident, or even a simple mistake. You just never know what life has in store 
for your heirs, and our planning protections can ensure their inheritance is protected 
from practically all potential threats—even those you could never possibly imagine. 
Big money can cause big problems

“Big” money is relative. What might be a modest inheritance to a 50-year old could 
be an enormous windfall to an 18-year old. And there are stories upon stories of heirs 
being negatively impacted by inheriting too much money at a young age. These cases 
occur quite often, and no matter how well adjusted your children or grandchildren may 
seem, there’s just no way to accurately predict how their inheritance will affect them.
One unique planning vehicle designed to prevent the potential perils of outright distributions is a 
Lifetime Asset Protection Trust (LAPT). These trusts last for the lifetime of their respective beneficiaries 
and provide them with a unique and priceless gift. With an LAPT, for instance, the beneficiary can use 
and invest the trust assets, yet at the same time, the trust offers airtight asset protection from unexpected 
life events, such as a lawsuit or serious debt, which have the potential to wipe out their inheritance. 
Help your heirs handle their inheritance

When drafted properly, an LAPT can be used to educate your beneficiary on how to handle their 
inheritance. This is done by allowing the beneficiary to become a co-trustee with someone you’ve 
named at a specific age or stage of life, and then the beneficiary can become the sole trustee later 
in life, once he or she has been properly educated and is ready to take over.

The LAPT is discretionary, which means that the trust would not only protect your heir from 
outside threats, like creditors and ex-spouses, but also from their own mistakes. The trustee you 
name holds the trust’s assets upon your death. This gives the person you choose the power to 
distribute its assets to the beneficiary at their discretion, rather than requiring him or her to 
release the assets in more structured ways, such as in staggered distributions at certain ages. 

Your direction and guidance are paramount

Many of our clients choose to provide guidelines directing the trustee on how the client would 
choose to make distributions in many different scenarios, such as for the purchase of a home, a 
wedding, the start of a business, and/or travel. Some clients choose to provide guidelines around 
how their successor trustees should make investment decisions, as well. 

Meet with your Personal Family Attorney to see if a Lifetime Asset Protection Trust is the right 
option for protecting your family wealth and loved ones from situations and circumstances (no 
matter what they may be), which are simply impossible to foresee. Don’t have a Personal Family 
Attorney? Contact us today to get your questions answered.

help parents protect what they love most. His office is located 
at 55 Auburn Avenue, Sierra Madre, CA 91024. Schedule an

 Students can earn money, get experience with work-study

One way students can help pay the cost of education after high school is through a work-study 
program, according to KHEAA. Plus, work-study can provide valuable experience that looks good 
on a résumé.

Federal Work-Study allows students to earn money to help pay the costs of post-high school education. 
Rules may vary some by school, but a student must gener-ally:

• Be enrolled in an eligible program.

• Be working toward a certificate or degree.

• Have financial need.

• Be a U.S. citizen or eligible noncitizen.

Students must be paid at least the federal minimum wage. Jobs may be on or off campus. Students who 
submitted the FAFSA will be considered for Federal Work-Study unless they asked not to be.

Many colleges have their own work-study programs. Students interested in a school’s program should 
check with the college’s financial aid office.

KHEAA is a public, non-profit agency established in 1966 to improve students’ ac-cess to college. 
It provides information about financial aid and financial literacy at no cost to students and parents. 
KHEAA also helps colleges manage their student loan default rates and verify information submitted 
on the FAFSA. For more in-formation about those services, visit
