LPS approves paid lunch increase

LAWTON, OK (KWSO) –Lawton Public Schools approved a ten-cent increase for lunches at their elementary and secondary locations.
 

Starting in the 2017-2018 school year, lunches at elementary schools will now cost $2.35 per meal, while lunches at secondary schools will cost $2.60.

Eligible students can get free or reduced lunches, and breakfast will still be free.
