Breakfast program begins at Schuylerville High School

Schuylerville High School students can now buy breakfast at school. The high school breakfast program launched on Sept. 8 and will continue throughout the 2015-16 school year. Students in grades 9-12 will have the option of purchasing cereal and toast, or the daily featured hot entrée, which also includes fruit, milk and juice, for $1.10. Students who qualify for free or reduced lunch will be able to purchase breakfast for $0.25.

“If students are hungry, they’re not able to learn as well,” Principal Matthew Sickles said. “We want our students alert and ready to learn, and that begins with breakfast.”

Breakfast is available from 7:30-7:57 a.m.

“Breakfast will be served in a paper bag that students can easily take to their first period class,” Food Services Manager Sarah Keen said. “We designed the program so that if a student is running late in the morning, they still have time for breakfast.”
