Breakfast in the Classroom
We want all of our students to eat a nutritious morning meal each day! This is why we adopted a Breakfast in the Classroom model, to help reduce barriers for our students to access breakfast. Breakfast is served from 8:40 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. in our elementary schools and beginning at 7:10 a.m. in our middle & high schools.
Because of our Breakfast in the Classroom program, students do not need to arrive early to purchase a morning meal. They can step off the bus or walk into the school and go straight to the cafeteria for a bagged breakfast meal. Students can select from a variety of items, place their selections in a breakfast bag, and then head off to their classrooms for a fun, nutritious meal.
Under Breakfast in the Classroom, our district went from serving 148,418 meals in the 2016-17 school year to serving more than 161,653 meals a year in 2017-18! More importantly, by providing a good start to the school day, Hempfield is helping to assure that our students can be focused for a morning of learning!
