Altadore School offers a Calgary Board of Education-run lunch program. Please provide food items that do not require cooking or heating. Milk is available for advance purchase in the form of coupons.

School Trustees determine lunchroom fees for the school year. See Noon Supervision for more information.

Students remain in lunchroom until dismissed by lunchroom staff, then play outside or participate in intramurals until 12:45 PM.  Please note that there is no adult supervision outside from 12:00-12:20 PM.

Milk Program  

Tickets purchased last year are still valid. New ticket forms were distributed in your back-to-school info packages (or can be accessed here). To order, return your child’s form (with cheque) to their teacher. Questions about the program? Contact Bonnie Tourigny, Milk Program Coordinator. 

Remember the Cutlery

When students don’t have cutlery, they have to wait to get plastic utensils from lunchroom staff. This is both environmentally unfriendly and places a cost upon the school. (Imagine 200 students and 200 days of lunch.) Thanks for your cooperation!

Recess Snacks

We would encourage children to have a healthy recess snack. Research shows that children learn and retain information better when they have had water to drink and have eaten a healthy snack. As an environmentally conscious school, we recommend “garbageless” snacks and hope to implement a composting program this year.

Fun Lunch

We organize monthly fun lunches and snack days for students. You can order at www.healthyhunger.ca. Don’t forget to send recess snacks and/or additional items to complement your child’s Fun Lunch if necessary.

Contact Jessica Geiger, Fun Lunch Coordinator for questions at altadorefunlunch@gmail.com.

Allergies

We have children at our school who are allergic to many different things. The specifics and the severity are different for each child. At Altadore School we are an “Allergy Friendly” school. Parents are asked to indicate health concerns on the school registration for their child and are encouraged to ensure classroom teachers are also aware of these concerns. We will post allergy signs outside of each classroom indicating what allergies have been identified for the students in that room.  

Please do not send nuts or peanuts to school with your child.  This includes all peanut/nut products, including those where nuts and peanuts are not the main ingredient.

We also encourage parents of children with severe allergies to educate them in making responsible decisions about how to manage these allergies on their own. Students are asked not to share lunches and treats. Children with life-threatening food allergies are encouraged to leave a small supply of “safe” treats with a teacher for those times when an outside treat is brought into the classroom.
