Breakfast in the Classroom
Breakfast in the Classroom will be offered at the following schools starting in the 2018-2019 school year: Bancroft, Bayard, Brader, Brookside, CEEC, Gallaher, Gauger-Cobbs, Jones, Keene, Leasure, Maclary, Marshall, McVey, Oberle, Palmer, Pulaski, Shue-Medill, Stubbs, West Park and Wilson.
How Does a Grab-n-Go Breakfast Work?Participating schools will have individually wrapped breakfast items available in the cafeteria. The students will come through the cafeteria lines, place the breakfast items of their choice in a bag, and proceed to the register for check-out. Once they are through the cafeteria line, the students will take their bagged breakfast to their classroom to eat, rather than sitting at the cafeteria tables. By offering a Grab-n-Go breakfast program, we believe our students will benefit from a nutritious breakfast that will fuel them to succeed in the classroom. If you have any questions about the Grab-n-Go breakfast program, please free to stop by the cafeteria.
