This year, WPS Schools is participating in the “Healthy School Meals for All” program; breakfast and lunch will be available to all students at no charge. All students enrolled at WPS may participate in Healthy School Meals for All program.
Studies have shown that children who are not hungry perform better in school. By providing lunch to all children at no charge, we are hoping to create a better learning environment for our students.
The school breakfasts and lunches we serve follow U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines for healthy school meals. The School Breakfast and Lunch Programs cannot succeed without your support; please encourage your children to participate in the school meal programs.
