Celebrate National School Breakfast Week March 4-8, 2013!
Why breakfast? The question truly is why not? Breakfast is available at each of our schools each day. Students who quality for free and reduced-price meals can receive breakfast each day at no cost.
The benefits of a healthy breakfast are virtually endless and can make significant impact in classrooms each day. Students who eat a healthy breakfast at home or at school:
- Are better able to concentrate in the classroom
- Score higher on standardized tests
- Visit the nurse’s office less often
- Are better able to maintain their weight
If there’s no time at home, students can eat breakfast at school each day! A few of the menu items available include bagels, fruit and yogurt parfaits, fruit and yogurt chillers, breakfast burritos and omelets.
Each March, we celebrate breakfast with National School Breakfast Week. This year’s theme is ‘Be a Star with School Breakfast’. Eating a wholesome breakfast each morning will help students shine. Join us in each of our school cafeterias during this special week to learn a little more about school breakfast.
School Breakfast FAQ’s
Is breakfast available at all schools?

Stay tuned to see what events will occur in your breakfast during this week! And, remember school breakfast is available each day. There’s no excuse for no breakfast.
Cherry Creek School District is committed to the health and wellness of the whole student and has set a goal to be the healthiest community in the nation.
In order to further this goal CCSD Health Services is excited to partner with CIIS (Colorado Immunization Information System) and CDPHE (Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment) to help maintain current immunization records and increase immunization rates for our students. CIIS is a confidential, population-based, computerized system that collects and disseminates consolidated immunization information for Coloradans of all ages.
Under Colorado law you have the option to exclude your child’s immunization information from the Colorado Immunization Information System at any time. Please click the below link or contact your school nurse for Opt-Out instructions.
