Sturgis Schools to increase lunch prices


STURGIS – Sturgis Public School students will be paying more for lunches in the 2017-18 school year.

During a recent meeting of the Sturgis Board of Education, Finance Director Ray Sterling shared that the K-2 buildings in the district will no longer be able to give as many free lunches to students as they have in the past. He said some students at Congress, Wall and Wenzel will not qualify for the free lunch programs.

Sterling says the lunch rates will be going up, based on a formula that the District gets from the State of Michigan. He shares what the new rates will be $2.45 at Eastwood, the high school and the middle school. At Wall, Congress, Wenzel and Trinity Lutheran, lunches will be $2.25.

To find out if your child qualifies for a free lunch, you need to contact the office of their school.
