Breakfast in the Classroom Common Questions and Answers

Eight elementary schools will participate in the Breakfast in the Classroom (BIC) program during the 2017-18 school year. All students who attend our school in the morning, regardless of income level, will be eligible to receive one free breakfast each day they attend school. Teachers will schedule 10 minutes at the beginning of class each morning for students to enjoy a healthy breakfast with their classmates.


Backman Elementary, (New) Escalante Elementary, Meadowlark Elementary, Mountain View Elementary, Riley Elementary, Rose Park Elementary, and Washington Elementary

No. Receiving a school breakfast is an individual choice and not a requirement.

At each location, school hours and bell schedules will remain unchanged. Students will assemble in the school gymnasium where adult supervision is provided.

No. School lunch is not included as part of the BIC program. Students will continue to eat their lunch in the school cafeteria as normal. Student accounts will be charged the regular student price for a school lunch, unless the student qualifies for free and reduced meal benefits.

YES. The school district relies entirely upon federal funding to cover the cost of the BIC program. Annual free and reduced meal benefit applications or individual direct certification through Utah government agencies is still recommended.
