Going Off-Campus at Lunch

We encourage all students to stay on campus at lunch.

However, if your parents allow you to go off our school property during the lunch hour, there are expectations and a schedule to follow.


As a representative of A. E. Cross, YOU are expected to show co-operation, respect, and good citizenship around the neighbourhood. Here are some guidelines.

  • Students can buy food at lunch only on their scheduled days
  • Students must bring a bagged lunch on your non-scheduled days
  • If students are not buying food at lunch or after school they should not be in the store with friends
  • Students are expected to place garbage in garbage cans provided
  • Students are expected to follow social distancing protocols
  • Students are expected to wear a mask
  • Students are expected to not share food or beverages
