2019/2020 Food Services Update: Your dining services department is excited to announce participation in the Universal Free Breakfast (UFB) program on a trial basis for the months of September and October! When Universal Free Breakfast is offered, breakfast is available at no charge to students, regardless of their household income. Breakfast is given to any student who wants it that day; however, the school claims the federal reimbursement at the correct income category for that student, this data is obtained from a student's free/reduced lunch application. This means that it is important for as many families to apply as possible to prevent the meal program operating at a loss, even if you think you may not qualify for free/reduced meals, PLEASE APPLY! UFB reduces the stigma attached to eating breakfast at school. It makes breakfast available to those students who may not want to participate in the program for fear of being labeled, "poor". It also provides breakfast for those students who cannot afford the cost of a reduced price breakfast. In addition, children who participate in UFB tend to have improved attendance, less tardiness and increased test scores. Please complete an online application or a paper application which can be found in our welcome packet that will be mailed home!
