The Waterford Schools Board of Education has been asked to approve school cafeteria meal prices for the 2010-11 school year, with no increase in prices recommended.
Elementary school students would pay $2.50 for lunch, while secondary students would pay $2.75 and adults would pay $3.50.
As for breakfast, elementary and secondary students would pay $1.50, while adults would pay $2.
The proposed meal prices will come up for final approval at the school board’s Thursday, Aug. 5 meeting.
Thomas Wiseman, assistant superintendent of business and human resources for the school district, said that the 2011-12 school year will mark the third consecutive year that Waterford Schools has not raised school meal prices.
Wiseman previously said that lunch prices are different from breakfast prices because lunch requires more labor and food preparation.
In 2008, the district approved a 25-cent increase in lunch prices for the 2008-09 school year to offset increases in the cost of food, supplies and transportation.
The district’s Food and Nutrition Department doesn’t receive general fund support.
