Hike in school lunch prices

Scrounging around for just the right amount of lunch money has long been an early morning rite for parents, and this year they're going to have to find a few more coins.

At its June 14 meeting, the Carlisle School Committee had heard a report from a Department of Education representative who audited the school lunch program and recommended a price increase. On August 4, the committee unanimously agreed that, effective in September, pricing for the following items be increased as follows:

Hot lunch $1.75

Milk .50

Juice .75

Bagel with cream cheese 1.25

All other lunch items will remain at last year's prices.
