School meal prices go up
ELLSWORTH - Back-to-school items dominated the Ellsworth School Board agenda Monday.
The board approved increasing school meal prices. Breakfast prices for the coming school term will be $1.60, up from $1.50. Lunch prices will be $2.20 at the elementary level and $2.40 for grades 5 to 12), also up by 10 cents.
Supt. Barry Cain said the increase was necessary because of rising commodity costs.
