Breakfast Program

  • The Elizabethtown Area School District offers a breakfast program at all of its schools. On those hectic days when breakfast at home is not convenient, the District encourages families to take advantage of this program. Research shows that students who begin the school day eating a healthy meal are far more likely to excel in school so the breakfast program is an ideal solution on mornings when your child cannot have a meal at home.


    The breakfast menu will include healthy options such as toaster pastries, Muffins, banana bread, cinnamon buns, pop tarts, french toast, pancakes, waffles, granola bars, yogurt, applesauce cups, peach cups, fresh fruit, juice, and milk (click here for nutritional information). If your child qualifies for a free or reduced price lunch, he or she automatically qualifies for a free or reduced priced breakfast. The meal cost, which can be paid for using your child’s school account or with cash, is as follows:

    • Regular price breakfast is $1.55
    • Reduced price breakfast is $0.30

    Registration is not necessary and students can attend every day or only occasionally. Morning kindergarten students are welcome to take advantage of this offer as well. Bus riders will not have a problem arriving in time for breakfast. Breakfast will be served Monday though Friday at all locations. Breakfast hours are as follows:

    • Elementary Schools - 8:30 - 8:45 a.m. 
    • Middle School - 7:15 - 7:40 a.m.
    • High School - 7:15 - 7:40 a.m.
