School Meals

Sidney City Schools participate in the USDA sponsored National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs, and all meals and snacks are served to meet or exceed the standards required by these programs.

The benefits to students who eat breakfast include: an increased attention span, fewer visits to the school nurse, reduced tardiness, increased attendance rate, improved test scores, and classroom behavior. It is important to encourage your child to begin every day with breakfast either at home or at school," says Shamara Foy, Director of Food Services
