The Student Center will begin to serve breakfast before 8:20 a.m. by the end of the school year.
According to Assistant Principal Jerry Berkson, students will be supervised by a rotation of teachers and teacher aides.
This policy change is primarily focused on helping students in the Voluntary Transfer Program who are often dropped before school by bus.
“[This is aimed at] Keeping the kids warm, give them places comfortable to get some of their schoolwork done,” Berkson said. “Some kids just don’t have a choice as to what time they get here.”
The new policy was proposed by a concerned parent who noticed that many students were sitting outside in the cold before school.
“I know it won’t be tri-tip sandwiches or anything like that, but it’ll have your basics like fruit and juice — nothing big,” Berkson said.
