Ellsworth school meal prices raised a dime each
An increase in school meal prices was approved by the Ellsworth School Board Monday.
Breakfast prices for the coming school term will be $1.60, up from $1.50, as a result. Lunch prices will be $2.20 at the elementary level and $2.40 at the secondary level (grades five to 12), also up by 10 cents per meal at each of those levels.
Superintendent Barry Cain said the increase was necessary because of rising commodity costs.
