2022-2023 Meal Update
The waivers for free breakfast and lunch ended on June 30, 2022. What this means for Bridgman families is that your student(s) will be charged for breakfast and lunch. Breakfast is $1.75 at the elementary school and $1.85 at the middle and high school. Lunch is $3.00 at the elementary school and $3.10 at the middle and high school. We strongly encourage parents to fill out a free and reduced application if they feel they will qualify. There are other benefits you can receive based on your income, including reduced cost for AP testing, athletic fees, Comcast Internet, and AT&T too! You can apply at https://bridgman.familyportal.cloud/
New Bridgman Family Portal
We have a new site that will allow you to fill out a free and reduced application, check lunch account balances, make deposits, and more, all on one site! It is very user-friendly and there are short tutorials to walk you through the process. If you have used sendmoneytoschool.com in the past, your information will transfer over once you have set up an account. Use the link above.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That is why we offer breakfast in all of our schools every day.
Breakfast is a great way to give the body the refueling it needs. Kids who eat breakfast tend to eat healthier overall and are more likely to participate in physical activities — two great ways to help maintain a healthy weight.
Skipping breakfast can make kids feel tired, restless, or irritable. In the morning, their bodies need to refuel for the day ahead after going without food for 8 to 12 hours during sleep. Their mood and energy can drop by mid-morning if they don’t eat at least a small morning meal.
Breakfast also can help keep kids’ weight in check. Breakfast kick-starts the body’s metabolism, the process by which the body converts the fuel in food to energy. And when the metabolism gets moving, the body starts burning calories. If you qualify for free or reduced lunches, this applies to breakfast as well.
Bridgman Public Schools Wellness Policy is written by a committee that includes administrators, teachers, community members, parents, and students. If you would like to be part of this committee please contact Peggy Ferguson at email@example.com or (269) 466-0228.
