Board Hikes School Lunch and Breakfast Prices
The price of Chillicothe School Breakfast and Lunch will go up with the new school year. The Chillicothe R-II School Board approved the increases at Monday’s meeting. Superintendent Dr Roger Barnes explains.
The prices for the Elementary Schools are: $1.15 for breakfast and $1.90 for lunch. For Middle and High School the prices are: $1.40 for breakfast and $2.15 for lunch. The cost of an additional milk remains at 30 cents. The cost of the adult meals is $1.90 for breakfast and $2.60 for lunch.
In an effort to help the families pay for the meals in a timely manner, Barnes says the district will soon implement an online pay system.
The board hopes this will provide families an easier way to pay the fees and for lunches.
