On Feb. 10, 132 students in first through fifth grades at Glen View Elementary participated in Jump Rope for Heart. Together they raised $5,736.31. All proceeds will be sent to the American Heart Association to help fight heart disease. Pictured are the fourth graders who participated.
School Food Service Supervisor Doris Marzett believes every child in the Lincoln Parish School District should have the opportunity to eat for free, but unfortunately, if the district did enroll in such a program to provide free meals — the federally-ran Community Eligibility Provision — the Food Service department would shut down.
“The percentage is high enough to enroll, but not high enough to where it wouldn’t hurt us,” Marzett said.
