Jericho School District’s Breakfast Exemption


The federal and state governments have mandated that all school districts implement a breakfast program for students.

Based on a survey of Jericho School District sent to parents of children currently enrolled in K-5 in the Cantiague and Seaman elementary schools, the district is requesting an exemption from the breakfast program for these schools for the 2016-17 school year. The results of the survey indicate that more than 80 percent of those responding would not use the program.

The George Jackson Elementary School had a pilot breakfast program for the first six months of the 2008-09 school year. The average daily participation was 10 for the six-month period, thereby granting Jackson Elementary School exempt from the breakfast program.

If any parents have questions or concerns regarding the request for the one-year exemption, contact Victor P. Manuel, assistant superintendent for business, 516-203-3600 ext. 3214, or Tracy Gilet, school lunch manager, ext. 3258.
