High school students in Polk County Schools will see their lunch prices go up next year, but there are many elementary schools that will find the entire student body will get their lunches and breakfasts free, School Nutrition Director Susan Ehrhart told the Polk County School Board on Tuesday.

Ehrhart said high school lunches for students who do not qualify for free or reduced price lunches will be charged $2.60, a hike of about 30 cents over this year’s costs. Students who qualify for reduced price lunches will pay the same 40 cents they were charged this year. The school board learned of the change last week, but won’t make the hike official until its June 10 meeting.
