 School Breakfast
  
National School Breakfast Week  
March 6th - 10th 2017
 Eat a Healthy Breakfast Everyday!
 
The School Breakfast Program
 
      Breakfast literally means 'breaking the fast' and is thought by many to be the most important meal of the day.  After a long night's sleep, it is critical to replenish our bodies  every morning with a meal - but can breakfast actually help kids learn better?  This notion  dates back to the early 1900's and research evidence says yes;  skipping breakfast can diminish school performance.  Breakfast skippers often experience headache, fatigue,  sleepiness and restlessness - do you think that you could learn under those circumstances?
 
      Students who eat breakfast have improved memory and increased problem-solving skills,  verbal fluency and creative abilities.  For many children and teenagers who don't eat at home,  the School Breakfast Program serves breakfast to 10.1 million kids in more than 84,500 schools and institutions nationwide.  Meals offered at school are available to ALL students.    These meals must include several food groups and are designed to sustain students' energy  throughout the day.
 
      School breakfasts are economical as compared to home or commercial choices.  They are  also cost effective for schools because they are supported, in part, by federal funds.  Based on  new research, eating school breakfast was even found to reduce tardiness, absences and visits to the school nurse....good-bye headaches!
       
Join us at school for a great breakfast every morning!

Don't Delay - Prepay Today!                          
 
Prepaying on your child's cafeteria account each month adds convenience for you and your child by:        
  • helps you budget for school meals                                                             
  • eliminating lost or stolen money
  • reducing the time your child waits in line
  • giving your child more time to eat
 Our computerized cash registers will keep track of the payments that you send in, and of the purchases your child makes.  The breakfast and lunch purchases will automatically be deducted from their account.  To put money on your child's account, bring cash or check to the cafeteria at your school.  Please include the student's name, school, grade and teacher.  If paying by check, please make it payable to:  Ken-Ton School District.  Checks returned for insufficient funds will be charged the $25.00 bank fee.
 
We also offer an online prepayment service which provides parents a convenient, easy and secure service to deposit money into your child's school account at any time.  Payments may be made through an existing Pay Pal account or with a major credit or debit card.  MySchoolBucks.com will charge a small convenience fee of $1.95 per transaction.

Breakfast
 
A Good Start
Did you know that breakfast is the most important meal of your child's day?  It provides the nutrients and energy that they need to concentrate in school.  Research even shows that kids who eat breakfast get better grades, pay more attention in class, and behave better.  Help your child begin their day on the right foot.
 
Join us at school for a great breakfast every morning! 
 

 
 
 
FREE AND REDUCED PRICE MEALS
 
School lunches are subsidized by the state and federal governments to help schools keep the cost per lunch low so that students can participate in the program.  You can apply for free or reduced meals anytime during the school year.  We can send an application to you, or you can download it from the link on the left-hand side of this page, or you are welcome to pick one up at any school office.  A new application needs to be filled out every year and turned in as soon as possible to avoid any meal charges.  If your child/children are eligible for a free or reduced lunch, they can also have a free or reduced priced breakfast everyday!

Food Allergies
 
    We are committed to keeping all of our students healthy and safe. If your child has an allergy to a certain food, a doctor's note must be submitted to the school nurse who will notify the cafeteria staff of the allergy.  We will work with the nurse and you to see that the child has an alternative selection. We are very concerned with keeping all of our students healthy and safe.
