Breakfast at School
Mornings can be real crazy! The alarm doesn’t go off, or the kids don’t want to get up, there’s no time to eat breakfast before the bus comes, or they’re just not ready to eat. Or maybe your teenager grabs a can of soda and a candy bar on the way to school. If this sounds like your house, we have good news for you.
Breakfast is available at school! Take advantage of this option to ensure your child eats a nutritional breakfast. Recent studies show a link between nutrition and learning. A nutritious breakfast helps students be more alert so they can actively participate in class. Breakfast provides students with ¼ of their nutritional needs each day.
Breakfast at school is FREE now, as well! ALL students attending Lackawanna City Schools are eligible to receive healthy breakfast and lunch meals AT NO CHARGE, regardless of their household income. This is due to the District being approved for the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), which allows the District to receive federal and state meal reimbursements for all students.
So take advantage of this opportunity to start the day on the right foot. Your child will find breakfast at school provides not only a nutritious meal, but also a relaxed atmosphere for socializing with friends and siblings.
