On "delay" days breakfast is still served but menus for the day may be modified. If we have consecutive delays or cancelations the menu may continue to be modified to prevent food loss or spoilage.
BREAKFAST IS SERVED AT EACH BUILDING EVERY DAY!
Don't forget about Breakfast! Starting your day with a good breakfast boosts your energy, increases your attention span and heightens your sense of well-being. If your student receives free or reduced lunch, they also receive a free or reduced price breakfast if they choose to eat with us.
