By Jeff Hage on May 16, Princeton Union Eagle;Princeton Middle school began serving breakfast on Monday this week as part of a breakfast program the school board approved last week. The board on May 8 also approved raising lunch prices at all the schools by 10 cents per meal each year for a number of years, starting with the next school year.
The regular price for the middle school breakfast will be at 80 cents. Students qualifying for both free and reduced lunch prices, will receive the breakfast for free.
The district’s two elementary schools – North and South – already have a long-established breakfast program, the district having begun its breakfast program in about 1994. The high school will remain without breakfast. Breakfast can’t currently be served at the high school since the school store would be open at the same time and federal programs can’t be in competition, Princeton School District Director of Business Services Carol Breitkreutz said.
The Princeton district’s food service director, Teresa Danner, recommended the breakfast plan for the middle school, which has grades 6-8. Click here to continue reading.
