    Breakfast Options at School:

    Mornings can be hectic! We get it. Breakfast at school is a perfect option to ensure that your child receives a nutritious breakfast in the morning without imposing on your child's morning routine. There is no cost for your child to participate in the Breakfast Program - they can sleep in a few extra minutes, start their day and curve their hunger in the morning hours of school with a quality selection of breakfast options. It's also a great opportunity to socialize with siblings and classmates before the focus on learning begins.
