Public School Lunch Price Raise
Billings Public School lunches will go up in price by about 10 cents next school year. The new prices were released to school trustees on Monday night. Prices are set using a formula based in part on how many students qualify for free or reduced-price lunches.
Trustees were also updated on the progress of the new Ben Steele Middle School, which is slated to open this fall on Billings’ West End. Janitorial staff is working in the building and classroom furnishings are being moved in, according to facilities director Scott Reiter.
