Lunch & Nutrition

Students are expected and encouraged to go home for lunch whenever possible. It is our policy to require students to 'pack it in and out'. This means that students in the lunch program bring a garbage-less lunch and, as well, take everything home that they do not eat. With this policy we save on after lunch clean-up while at the same time being environmentally friendly. Moreover, because students bring home what they do not eat, parents will have a better sense of the lunch-time eating habits of their children.

Lunch supervision is provided for students who have parents working outside the home and/or for emergency use. The Lunch Program Coordinator and Lunch Program Aides who provide this supervision, are hired by each school as needed. Lunches are eaten in classrooms (11:21 - 11:50 am) and then students are dismissed for an outdoor break.  Lunch students are expected to stay on the school grounds from 11:50 - 12:16 when classes resume.

The lunch program is required to operate at no cost to the school and therefore, all students, who stay at school during the lunch hour, must pay fees. The lunch fees for the 2015-2016 school year are:

      $10/month per child

Eating lunch at school is a privilege which will be taken away if abused. If lunchroom fees are not paid when due, the service may be withdrawn and parents will be responsible for making alternate arrangements for their children.
