Your kitchen staff is pleased to announce that we will be expanding our breakfast beginning menu, Monday, March 3, 2015.  Our breakfast menu is now posted on Nutrislice.  This program is part of the National School Breakfast Program, which will meet the daily needs of any students that currently receive free or reduced school lunches.  The full price amount for a school breakfast is $2.00.  This will include their breakfast entree, along with fruit choices and milk (optional).  Each student will have a daily selection of entree choices as well as A La Carte choices.  We will also offer a selection of approved Smart Snacks and beverages as A La Carte. Breakfast service will begin at 7 am daily, and continue until approximately 7:35 am (just after the final morning bell). Please contact Amber Franklin, Kitchen Manager @ afranklin@dcsdk12.org or 303-387-3335 if you have any questions about our new middle school breakfast program.  We hope that we can provide your child with a nutritious breakfast to start their day! Parents and staff welcome!
