The price for breakfast is $1.40 at the elementary and intermediate schools and is $1.45 at the middle and high schools. The reduced breakfast price is $.30. Breakfast includes milk, a fruit or vegetable or juice and a grain and/or a protein.
If your child is eligible for free or reduced priced lunch, he/she is eligible for free or reduced priced breakfast as well.
Cafeteria account payments must be made in advance and may be made in several ways.
Cash or check payments may be sent with students to school in an envelope marked with the student’s name and amount enclosed. ICES and ICIS students give payments to their teacher. ICMS and ICHS students should drop cafeteria payments into the drop box located in the school’s main office first thing in the morning.
Students should not make payments in the cafeteria during serving times.
Parents may also make credit card payments or payments from their bank account through your Infinite Campus Parent portal.
