  • Dear Families,

    McClure Elementary is committed to ensuring that all of our students start the day with a healthy breakfast. Kids who eat breakfast tend to perform better in school, have better attendance rates, and display fewer behavior problems. We know that morning routines can be hectic and many kids are not hungry when they wake up and that is exactly why we provide breakfast every morning in a way that allows all students to participate, even after the bell.

     

    McClure Elementary serves breakfast in a way that is accessible to students:

    A full breakfast is served from 8:00-8:30. After 8:30, our staff need to prepare to be in classrooms to teach, so students will receive a breakfast that is a: Grab and Go to the Classroom alternate breakfast.  Students pick up breakfast from the breakfast line on the way to their classroom. Students will receive a milk, fruit, and grain product in a small paper boat. The Styrofoam trays do not fit in the classroom garbage cans. Students have an opportunity during the first 10 minutes of class to eat breakfast and they get the fuel they need to be ready to learn.

     

    In the event that a bus arrives late to school, students on the bus will still be served a full breakfast.

     

    There are many great things about our improved breakfast program. In addition to having access to a nutritious breakfast, it takes pressure off parents and caretakers to provide
