Schools get ready as Spring Break nearly here

Spring Break for students in the Pulaski County Special School District is next week and plans are already in place to keep them going.

The school district will make five-day meal boxes available to any student who wants one for Spring Break.

Parents can call the cafeteria at their child’s school to request the boxes no later than Wednesday, March 17 at 1 p.m. The pick up day for meal boxes will be on Friday, March 19 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. 

A five day box would include:

  • Five heat-and-serve prepared home meals

  • Five cups of vegetables

  • Five cups of different fruit

  • 10 ounces of grain items

  • 10 cartons of milk

  • Five prepared breakfast entrees

  • Five cartons of juice

The boxes are funded by the National School Lunch Program and are age appropriate, so an elementary school student would get slightly smaller portions. As an example, those students would get half a cup of fruit, while older students would get a full cup.

A typical breakfast would then be a sausage biscuit, half cup fruit, 4 ounces of juice and 8 ounces of milk,” she said for breakfast, while lunch might be chicken alfredo, green beans, orange glazed carrots, whole grain roll, half cup of fruit and 8 ounces of milk.
