Harold Panabaker School, with support from our School Council, has traditionally adhered to a closed campus policy during lunch. This means, we want all of our students, even those who live within walking distance of the school, to stay on the school property during the entire lunch break. For students who do not bring a healthy lunch, we have a tuck shop that offers affordable meals and snacks. 

We provide both internal and external supervision during lunch. There are a variety of activities during the lunch period, including (clubs, homework help, intramurals, etc.). Though we believe, staying in a supervised environment is the safest and best choice; we understand that some Parents want to provide permission for their kids to leave campus during the lunch hour for specific reasons. 

Leaving Campus for Lunch

There are two acceptable reasons a student can leave campus during our lunch period. First, the student lives within walking distance from the school (able to get home and back within the lunch period). The second is a one-time permission for students to leave campus during the lunch period. See the permission form under Resources on this page. Please indicate if you live within walking distance and would like to provide your student the permission to leave campus during lunch. For those wanting a one-time permission we ask that you select the One-Time Permission Box. 

Allergies

As a number of our students have severe allergies to nuts, including peanuts, we are an Allergy Aware school. We ask for your support in protecting students with allergies by not sending foods containing tree nuts or peanuts to school. For more information about this and other health concerns see our Illness & Medical page.  

Fun Lunches

Fun lunches give our students an opportunity to eat lunch, socialize with their friends at school and take part in special activities.
