Lunch Hour Expectations

A variety of supervised activities are available over the lunch hour and participation is encouraged. Samuel W. Shaw is a closed campus. This means with the exception of students who have a special reason to go home for lunch, it is expected that students will not leave the school grounds during lunch. Students who go home for lunch every day for the whole school year will need to have parents send in a signed copy of the Off Campus Permission Form to the main office. This form can also be picked up at the main office. 

Occasionally, parents may take their son/daughter out of the school at lunch. Please inform the office by a written/oral explanation on or before the "lunch" date. Convenience stores in the community are off-limits to students during the school day. We ask parents to discuss lunch hour activities with their children and to remind students that they are responsible for their conduct at all times, on or off school property. 

Grade 5 & 6 students eat in the Gathering Space where supervision is provided. Grade 5 & 6 students are required to spend the first half of lunch (1:08 – 1:28) in the Gathering Space.  The second half of lunch (1:28 – 1:48) they will be escorted to their lockers to put away their lunch boxes, retrieve their outerwear and go outside for some fresh air. Supervision is provided through Noon Supervision Fees.

Grade 7-9 students are welcome to eat lunch in the lower halls, outside, or under the supervision of a teacher in the classroom. Grade 7-9 are requested not be in the upper halls and Gathering space during lunch. They are also allowed to go in and out as they please during lunch.  It is reminded that they should only use the Compound doors. Grade 7-9 students are reminded that they are to stay on campus for the entire lunch, unless there is a signed Off Campus Permission Form on file in the office.

During Lunch, there will be supervised activates for all grades.  Please visit the Club Calendar.

Awesome Shawsome Shack

Although many of our students bring their lunch to school, prepared food is also available for purchase from our Awesome Shawsome Shack kitchen. Our snack shack is not intended to be a full service cafeteria and items are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. There are also microwave ovens in the lunchroom areas available for student use at lunch hour.

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. If you are interested in participating in this program, please create an account at Healthy Hunger
