Students that have qualified for the reduced lunch program will have a fee of $.30 per breakfast. All other students that would like to purchase breakfast will be charged a fee of $1.75 per day.  If your child does not qualify for the free or reduced lunch program, and has a negative lunch balance, they will not be allowed to purchase breakfast.

There is NO food allowed on school buses!

At the beginning of the school year Westport Community Schools informed ALL parents that students caught eating on the school bus would be immediate grounds for dismissal of bus privileges! Some students still continue to eat on the bus without being aware that some foods may contain allergens that may cause Anaphylaxis – a severe, potentially fatal allergic reaction.

Allergens
Although nearly any food is capable of causing an allergic reaction, only eight foods account for 90 percent of all food-allergic reactions in the United States. These foods include peanuts, tree nuts, milk, egg, wheat, soy, fish and shellfish. For more information on these Common Allergens, visit the Food Allergy Research & Education website.

School District Policies:

  • EEAD-R, Student Conduct on Buses
  • JLCF-R, LIFE-THREATENING ALLERGY POLICY

Based on guidance from USDA*, foods that pose the highest risk for choking are foods that possess the following characteristics: ‘round, tube-shaped, small, hard, thick and sticky, smooth, slippery, or easily molded to the airway’.
In order to align with Massachusetts state licensing and USDA’s recommendations, FNP’s policy restricts the serving of the following foods to children under four years of age:

  • Hot Dogs, sausages, sausage links or similar processed food items • Grapes, cherries, melon balls, kiwi fruit, cherry and grape tomatoes • Specific berries- kiwi berries, raspberries, blackberries, goji berries
  • Peanuts, nuts and seeds (for example, sunflower or pumpkin seeds) • Peanut butter and nut/seed butters
  • Dried fruit such as raisins or cranberries
  • Shelf stable, dried and semi-dried meat, poultry, seafood snacks (such as beef jerky or summer sausage)
  • Popcorn
