Beginning on Wednesday, August 24, for Grades K-8, a nutritious breakfast will be available to students in the classrooms. "Breakfast in the Classroom" replaces the breakfast service before school in the cafeteria.
Each day the Sodexo Food Service team prepares breakfast according to federal nutrition guidelines. Students may select an entree and a fruit and/or juice(milk is optional) while the teacher begins morning lessons. Breakfast becomes part of their daily routine and typically takes about 10-15 minutes at the beginning of the class period. We will be introducing hot breakfast one day a week in the K-5.
The cost of breakfast varies from full pay ($1.25) to reduced ($0.40) to free. Your child's teacher will ask each student if they are eating breakfast and note this on the roster which is returned to Sodexo each morning. If your child has eaten breakfast you will be charged accordingly.
Some families may not want their child to eat breakfast at school because they are given breakfast at home. This is perfectly okay! We do ask that if you do not want your child eating breakfast in the classroom you talk to your child about not taking breakfast when it is offered. This will prevent unwanted charges being made to your child's account.
If you would like to send a healthy breakfast or snack for your child to have during this time, we encourage you to do so.
Please contact our District Wellness Coordinator, Don Christman at 252-6022 x 217 if you have any questions.
