Breakfast is Served!

A healthy, nutritious breakfast is a critical ingredient to the success of our students.  To help our students succeed, the school breakfast program is available in all of our schools. Healthy choices include cereal, whole-grain breakfast bars, yogurt, fruit and milk in the elementary buildings.   Those choices, along with fresh-made hot breakfast sandwiches and other favorites are featured in the secondary buildings.   Fresh-made fruit smoothies are also available in the high schools. Breakfast is served in the cafeteria prior to the start of the school day.  For menu information and serving times at your student’s school, please check the schools website or on the Utica Community Schools Mobile App.  

Breakfast for students at all grade levels will begin on Tuesday, September 4, 2018.   Please note that breakfast is served on all scheduled school days, including half-days, throughout the school year.   Lunch service will begin on Tuesday, September 4, 2018 for secondary buildings and on Wednesday, September 5, 2018 for elementary buildings.

Dear Parents:

Our school is committed to providing a safe and effective learning environment that respects the unique needs of all of our students. If your student is taking part in our lunch or breakfast programs, it is important that we have the appropriate information to address any possible food allergies.

The attached form will help ensure that our school food service department is addressing your child’s needs. If your student is participating in a breakfast or lunch program, please have your physician provide the necessary information. Once complete, this form can be e-mailed to, faxed directly to the department at 586-797-8358 or returned to our school office. This form provides additional information beyond what may have already been previously noted on the Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE).
