Menu items at breakfast include breakfast burrito, breakfast bread, yogurt parfait, and oatmeal breakfast round. Each day there is also a variety of cereal, vanilla yogurt, and toast. In addition to their main entrée students can choose milk and fruit to round out the meal. Check with your school for breakfast times. If there’s no time at home, your student can eat breakfast at school each day! Students can apply for Free and Reduced-Price Meals at any time Students and families are able to complete an application for free and reduced-price meals at any time during the school year. If you believe your student may qualify for free and reduced-price meals, an application can be completed online at www.ccsdcafe.org or by paper with an application from your kitchen manager. If a student qualifies for free and reduced price meals, they may eat breakfast and lunch at school each school day free of charge.
