Please know that, as we do in all health-related cases, we are working closely together and receiving additional guidance from the Stark County Health Department, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

To encourage more families to take advantage of school breakfast, Perry Local Schools will celebrate National School Breakfast Week during March 2-6, 2020. A healthy breakfast at the start of the day is a great way to ensure students get the best education they can. National School Breakfast Week helps us educate parents and students about all the healthy, great tasting, and appealing choices Perry Schools offer. Each breakfast consists of whole grains, fresh fruit, juice and milk while limiting fat, calories and sodium.
Studies show that students who eat school breakfast are more likely to:
Reach higher levels of achievement in reading and math
Score higher on standardized tests
Have better concentration and memory
Be more alert
Maintain a healthy weight
Breakfast is offered before the start of the school day at all Perry Local School Cafeterias. Cost is $1.35; Reduced $.30; Qualify for free lunch-free breakfast.
Due to the inclement weather, all Perry Local Schools and the Career and Wellness Center will be closed Friday, February 7, 2020.
