Lunch & Nutrition

Our school provides a supervised lunch program on a regular or drop-in basis as a service to parents. However, we encourage parents if at all possible to make other arrangements for lunch. Children benefit from a break in school routine.

Lunch program fees collected cover the costs of the noon hour supervision, additional custodial services, and equipment. For example, all outdoor play equipment used during the noon hour, videos and games for rainy days, microwave ovens, cheese sandwiches for children who occasionally forget their lunch, soap, paper towels and other supplies are paid for with the fees. Students typically eat in their classrooms.

Students staying for lunch are expected to behave in a respectful, responsible manner. Our School Behaviour and Conduct Policy extends through the lunch hour. Students who are not cooperative will be asked to eat their lunch with another class or they may be temporarily or permanently suspended from the lunch program.

Students not in the regular lunch program who stay for lunch to attend a scheduled extra curricular activity will pay the daily fee to attend and be supervised within the lunch program.
