It will cost more to eat at school in Greencastle-Antrim

PAT FRIDGEN

Lunch prices will go up in the district's four schools next year. The Greencastle-Antrim school board approved the increase June 16, in part to meet future federal guidelines.

Lunches went up 10 cents and milk five cents. The new prices are: elementary lunch, $1.80; secondary lunch, $2.10; adult lunch, $3.35; milk, 40 cents. Lipella said the meal tickets had not changed in three years but food prices had gone up. Also, starting in July, the federal government was requiring schools to eventually get the prices up to the subsidy rate of $2.46, in dime increments.

In other business, the board accepted the resignation of Robert Henry, high school biology teacher, who is retiring. It also gave the Facilities Committee the authority to approve any change orders under $50,000 during the month of July, when the board does not meet, for work on the stadium renovation project. The committee members are Howard Ritchey, William Thorne and Brian Hissong.
