Elementary Information


What is Breakfast in the Classroom (BIC)?
Each morning, Child Nutrition staff will prepare food and transport to all elementary classrooms. To ensure optimum temperature and freshness, the food items will be transported in insulated cooler bags.  After the school doors open, all elementary students will report to their classroom where breakfast will be available and offered at "no cost" to each elementary student.

What must my child select in order to receive the reimbursable breakfast at "no  cost"?
Your child must select a minimum of 3 out of 4 food groups offered with 1/2 cup fruit required as one of the choices.  

Will my child be able to purchase one item or extra items?
With the BIC, only reimbursable breakfast will be offered at this time.

What if my child does not want to eat breakfast?
The program is offered to all elementary students, but it is the student's choice whether or not to participate.

Will BIC take away from instructional time?
No.  BlC takes place in no more than 15 minutes prior to the first tardy bell.
