We are thrilled to offer breakfast across all schools this year! Consuming a healthy breakfast is one of the best ways you can ensure your child is ready to learn in school.
 
What is offered for breakfast?
Just like lunch, the menu meets the nutritional standards set by the USDA and California Department of Education. Each day, the menu features fresh fruit, whole grains, proteins, and milk. View breakfast menus here. 
 
How does breakfast work at Elementary Schools?
Breakfast is free of charge for all students and is offered during the AM recess time. Students will need to either enter a student id, or provide their name and classroom teacher, or select thier picture to receive a breakfast, it varies by school how the student information is collected. Even though their is no charge, we do need to record the students information in order to receive funding for the program. Those students who want to have a breakfast can go to the cafeteria, it is not required. 
(Please note, Quail Run Elementary operates a different breakfast program called Grab n Go to the Classroom. Please contact Child Nutrition or Quail Run for more information.)  
 
How does breakfast work at Middle & High Schools?
Some schools offer breakfast before the start of school and some schools offer breakfast after, during an AM passing period. Depending on the school, breakfast is offered either in the cafeteria or at a grab n go station. Students will need to either enter a student id, or provide their name and classroom teacher, or select thier picture to receive a breakfast, it varies by school how the student information is collected. Even though their is no charge, we do need to record the students information in order to receive funding for the program. 
 
 
For this first semester, cold or shelf stable items will be offered - such as low sugar cereal bars, yogurt, muffins, cheese sticks, and always fresh fruit and milk.  
 
Please note, this is a new program for our Elementary Schools and for many of our Middle Schools. Child Nutrition is monitoring and evaluating the program during the first weeks of school and may make adjustments, such as changing the service time to before school or other models. Breakfast is a requirement of California's new Universal Meal mandate, which provides funding for all students to have access to a free breakfast and lunch for every school day.
