The School Committee also recently approved a modest increase to the price of school lunches for the first time since 2009. The request was brought to the School Committee by Director of Food services Karen DiMaso. The increase, which went into effect on the first day of school on Tuesday, is a 25 cent increase at all schools. This means that the price of lunch at all elementary schools and Marshall Simonds Middle School is now three dollars, while the price at the high school is bumped up to $3.25. Superintendent Eric Conti noted that in recent years, the lunch program had been wavering between operating in the black and in the red, but has been mainly in the black since the 2009 price increase. School Committee members noted that 25 cents was a reasonable increase and Vice Chair Christine Monaco said she felt DiMaso’s department was “doing a fantastic job.” The measure passed on a unanimous vote.
