Sequim: School lunch prices could increase

SEQUIM — Student breakfast and lunch costs could become the next area to experience inflation within the school district.

Superintendent Mike Joyner will ask the School Board to consider increasing cafeteria prices for the 2001-2002 school year on Monday.

The board meets at 7 p.m. in Room 4 of the Old Performing Arts Building of Sequim High School, 601 N. Sequim Ave.

He will also ask the board to consider a pay-to-play program for student participation in co-curricular activities, including sports.

The recent failure of the district’s proposed three-year, $8.2 million maintenance and operations levy has resulted in stepped-up efforts to cut costs and make adjustments to compensate for an anticipated budget shortfall.
