The district participates in the National School Breakfast/Lunch Program and provides nutritious foods for children, thereby contributing to their daily dietary requirements. The breakfast program is available in secondary schools only. By encouraging good eating habits and offering menus carefully devised for nutritional as well as taste appeal, this program endeavors to function as an integral part of the entire educational program.
The Board of Education has established a policy that no child should be deprived of school lunch because (s) he is economically disadvantaged. Pupils may be provided free or reduced-price breakfasts and lunches on a continuing, intermittent, or emergency basis when family circumstances require it. Required application forms will be mailed in August. Forms will also be available in each school building or click here:
