How does Breakfast in the Classroom work?
Just as the name implies, students eat breakfast in the classroom at the beginning of the day. Reimbursable breakfasts are individually packaged in easy to grab bags. Breakfasts can be either hot or cold. Breakfast in the classroom will be delivered to the classrooms on carts by the food service staff.
Little teaching time is lost, as breakfast only takes 10 to 15 minutes for the students to eat. We are anticipating breakfast will be served between 7:50 a.m. or 7:55 a.m. and last until 8:05 a.m. or 8:10 a.m. Teachers can use this time to take attendance, collect homework deliver announcements or read to the class. Our hope is that teachers will feel this is a valuable use of time and that their classes are more productive when students have a healthy breakfast.
Students are responsible for cleaning away their trash into trash bags provided by the cafeteria. Classroom representatives will take the trash bags out to the hallway for custodial staff to collect.
Why Serve Breakfast in the Classroom?
Most importantly, we believe when breakfast is served in the classroom, more students will eat breakfast. Breakfast in the classroom is a great way to reach students who do not have time to eat before school, or who are not able to get to school in time for breakfast. Classrooms are familiar to students and offer a comfortable environment for eating.
