Danville schools meal to cost a dime more
Lunches at Danville's five schools will cost a dime more this coming school year. Here are the new prices, which were approved Monday night by the Danville Board of Education:
Hogsett, Jennie Rogers and Toliver elementary schools: $1.60. Bate Middle School and Danville High School: $1.85. Adults (teachers, staff, visitors): $2.60.
Higher food and labor costs are the reasons for the increased prices of lunches, said district financial officer Patsy Clevenger.
