Students Offered Breakfast at all Wasatch School District Schools
|Students at Wasatch High School enjoy breakfast before school starts. The food services program in the school district places a high priority on helping students receive nutritious meals to help them achieve academically.
Student nutrition is a high priority for the Wasatch County School District. Studies have shown that students who eat a healthy breakfast before school have a much more successful educational experience during the day.
Wasatch County School District serves breakfast at every school in the district on every school day, according to Darren Wilkins, School Food Services Supervisor. The school district is a part of the National School Breakfast Program and offers a nutritious breakfast everyday for students kindergarten through 12th grade.
The goal of the program is to provide a nutritious breakfast at a very low cost. Elementary students pay $1.25 per meal. Students at Timpanogos Intermediate School and Rocky Mountain Middle School pay $1.35. High School students pay $1.50.
Breakfast is served for thirty minutes prior to the start of school. The Free & Reduced lunch program also applies to breakfast. Students who qualify for free lunches would pay nothing for their breakfast, while those who qualify for reduced lunch costs would pay 30 cents for their breakfast.
Menus are available at the schools and online at www.wasatch.edu.
