Lunch program

Some changes have been made to our lunch schedule this year to ensure room to play while our playground is being renovated.  Students that go home for lunch will have a supervisor outside at the playground at 12:10 as in the past (they will be required to go to the playground only).

                       Division II children eat.

11:55 am        Bell/whistle; division I students to line-up for lunch; Division II students go

                       outside to play.

Noon               Division I students inside to wash hands and go to lunchrooms; division II

                      students outside to play.

Encourage your child to eat breakfast and send a healthy snack with them to school.  Please contact the school for a list of healthy ideas or visit the Alberta Health Services School Nutrition website for lunch and snack ideas at www.albertahealthservices.ca/.

It is district policy that the lunchroom program is to be provided at no-cost to schools or the school board, threrefore it is the fee's paid by attendees that supports this program.

The lunchroom program cost is $180.00 for the year. Students who stay occasionally are charged $2.50 per day. "Lunch Club Passes" can be purchased for $2.50 each from the office.  Receipts will be issued when "lunch Club Passes" or monthly fees are paid. Please keep your receipts for Tax purposes. Only one receipt will be issued.

If your child usually stays for lunch, please let the office know when your child will be absent from the lunch program. (For example going to a friend's house for lunch). All students who stay at school during lunch are not allowed to leave school property, unless they have a written note form parents authorizing them to do so.

Juice Machine and Milk purchases
A juice vending machine is located near the school gym. It sells Fruitopia, Apple, Orange and Dasani water for $1.25 per can. The school receives a rebate for each juice sold. Profits go towards classroom recess equipment, Super C prizes and incentives for the students. This machine is only to be used during the lunch hour rather than at recess breaks. Our milk program is currently being revised - please contact the office for information.

Hot Lunch Days
Occasionally School Council organize a hot lunch day during the year. On these days students who are participating in the hot lunch can stay and enjoy the lunchtime activities.

Clubs
Students who participate in clubs that do not start until 12:00 are required to pay lunch fees. This covers the extra supervision that is required.
