Fun Lunches

We have fun lunches that are organized by Highwood’s School Council. If you would like your child to participate in this program, please register and pay at healthyhunger.ca.

Fun lunches occur weekly throughout the year; you are welcome to register and order for your child any time throughout the school year!

October Schedule

Milk Cards

As we are trying to promote healthy choices in the lunchroom, we are continuing the milk program at Highwood School. This means that students can buy milk cards at the office for $10 (good for 13 milks). Milk cards from last year will still be accepted. Students can choose from white milk or sugar reduced chocolate milk. Milk cards are the responsibility of the students and lost cards will not be replaced.

Lunchtime Activities

During the year school staff will offer noon hour clubs and activities. See more on our Clubs page.

Allergies

Please ensure that teachers are aware of all severe allergies and the actions that should be taken should your child have an allergic reaction. See more on Allergies.

Due to student allergies, we always tell students that they cannot share food with each other during lunch or snack time. We are a nut free school and we ask that you be considerate of those with allergies and not pack lunches or snacks with nuts. If your child has any allergies, please ensure that the office and your child’s teacher know of this and also has an emergency plan in place. Any medications need to be left at the office along with a signed consent form to allow office staff to administer the medication as necessary. Students are not to take medication on their own for safety reasons.
