School Breakfast Information

Due to the pandemic, we will continue to run the pilot breakfast program at Franklin Avenue Elementary, Middle School and High School for the 2020-21 school year.  This pilot will then be evaluated over the 2021-22 school year to determine if it will be included in the next school year.

Due to lack of participation in previous years, PRSD is seeking an exemption from the Federal Breakfast Program for Lincoln Avenue Elementary and Evans Park Elementary for the 2020-21
school year.
