The school district will provide free breakfast and lunch for all students enrolled at Westside Elementary, Sisseton Middle School, and Sisseton High School. If your student wishes to purchase extra entrees or milk, this must be paid for with cash at the time of the purchase. This program will run through the end of the 2020-21 school year. The regular cost of meals will begin again with the start of the 2021-22 school year. Meal charges since October 1, 2020 have credited back into the student food service account.
