EAT BREAKFAST AT SCHOOL!
Mornings can be really crazy…the alarm doesn’t go off…the kids don’t want to get up…there’s no time to eat breakfast before the bus comes…or they’re just not ready to eat. Or maybe your teenager grabs a can of soda and a candy bar on the way to school. If this sounds like your house, we have good news for you.
Breakfast is served every morning in all Wilcox County schools! School breakfast will give your child a healthy start to the day. A nutritious breakfast helps students be more alert so they can learn more in class. Breakfast has vitamins and nutrients for a strong and healthy body.
Wilcox County has participated in Provision 2 since 2006. This school year we will be collecting applications to continue Provision 2. The students will be charged at the beginning of the year based on their eligibility. Reduced students will be charge .30 for breakfast and paid students will be charged 1.00 for breakfast. Beginning September 1st, breakfast at school will be free of charge for all students enrolled in our schools. You can’t find a better bargain than this for a healthy breakfast anywhere else.
Help your child start the day right with school breakfast!
