SIDNEY — A school breakfast program is available to all students attending Sidney City Schools. Breakfast is available to students daily before school in each building’s cafeteria. (Please check your child’s building schedule for times.) The cost for breakfast for students in grades kindergarten through 5 is $1. For students in grades 6 to 12, the cost is $1.50.

Students who qualify for free or reduced meals are eligible to receive a free breakfast. Breakfast is served daily except on days with a delay.

“The benefits to students who eat breakfast include: an increased attention span, fewer visits to the school nurse, reduced tardiness, increased attendance rate, improved test scores and classroom behavior,” said Food Service Director Hugh Aukerman. “It is important to encourage your child to begin everyday with breakfast either at home or at school.”
