Mornings can be really crazy…the alarm doesn’t go off…the kids don’t want to get up…there is no time to eat breakfast before the bus comes…or they’re just not ready to eat!  Or maybe your teenager grabs a soda and a candy bar on the way to school.  If this sounds like your house in the morning, we can help.  Breakfast is served at school every day school is in session! 

Why choose School Breakfast?  
School breakfast will give your child a healthy start to the day.  Students who eat breakfast have better attention and memory (1)and studies show that eating breakfast at school results in higher test scores (2)

Breakfast selections include whole grain rich items, fresh or canned fruit, 100% fruit juice and low fat or fat free dairy products.  You can’t find a healthy breakfast at such a low cost anywhere else.

Smart Snacks

The Food Service Department is always very active in preparing for the new school year. We realize nutritional healthy meals play an important role in the education of our students. Studies have proven children learn better with a nutritious meal in their system than those that are less fortunate. So with this in mind, we are anxious to introduce the Healthy Hungry Free Kids Act (HHFKA) passed as a law by congress. Students and parents can expect many benefits from healthier and more nutritious food in school. Click Smart Snacks for the USDA Smart Snacks in School Standards.
