As you know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. As your child’s educational facility, we know that hungry children cannot learn. As the first steps toward addressing this issue, we serve breakfast at all Mason Public Schools. Breakfast is served before school at different locations in each building. A school breakfast is made up of three components, which are defined as one serving of fruit, one serving of milk and one equivalent grain/bread. Hot and cold breakfast served throughout the week.

Mason High School:  Breakfast served 7:00 am – 7:45 am
Mason Middle School:  Breakfast served 7:25 am – 7:35 am
Harvey Education Center: Breakfast served 8:25 am – 8:50 am
Alaiedon Elementary: Breakfast served 8:30 am – 9:00 am
North Aurelius Elementary: Breakfast served: 8:20 am – 9:00 am

Breakfast is served in several stations near the entrance so students can grab and go upon entry of the building.
