Beginning, Monday, October 3, 2016 Westport Jr. Sr. High School will begin offering breakfast to all students starting at 7:00 am until 7:30 am and then again for grades 9 through 12 at 9:00 am breaktime. Students who qualify for free lunch will receive free breakfast, students who qualify for reduced lunch will pay the reduced breakfast rate of $.30 and full pay breakfast is $1.75. There will be a poster that explains what is considered a complete breakfast. Thank you for participating!
The National School Lunch Program offers two Breakfast Programs; one is the Universal Breakfast Program that offers “free” breakfast to all students regardless of their eligibility. The other program is offered to all students but at a cost for those students who do not qualify under the free or reduced lunch program eligibility. Beginning, Monday, February 01, 2016, the previous FREE breakfast program will only be free to students that have qualified for the free lunch program. Students that have qualified for the reduced lunch program will have a fee of $.30 per breakfast. All other students that would like to purchase breakfast will be charged a fee of $1.75 per day. If your child does not qualify for the free or reduced lunch program, and has a negative lunch balance, they will not be allowed to purchase breakfast.
The Breakfast Program is available at the Macomber Primary School and will be available at the Westport Jr. Sr. High School beginning Monday, October 3, 2016.
Breakfast cost: Full paying students pay $1.75 per breakfast
Qualifying free students pay $0.00 per breakfast

Whole Grain Rich
Beginning in school year 2014-2015, all grains and breads in school meal programs were required to be "whole grain-rich," meaning that they had to contain at least 50 percent whole grain meal and/or flour. These requirements also reflect the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which recommended making whole grains at least half of all grains consumed.

FOOD ON SCHOOL BUSES
There is NO food allowed on school buses!
At the beginning of the school year Westport Community Schools informed ALL parents that students caught eating on the school bus would be immediate grounds for dismissal of bus privileges!

Although nearly any food is capable of causing an allergic reaction, only eight foods account for 90 percent of all food-allergic reactions in the United States. These foods are:
