Our lunch hour is from  

If your child attends lunchroom on a regular basis and they are going to be away, please call the office 403-817-3436 ext 0 or you can send a note with your child to give to the office.

Lunch Supervision

We provide students with the option of staying at school for lunch. Lunch Supervision is offered to all students in Grades 1- 5. This service provides students with the opportunity to practice social skills supported by caring adult supervision. Learn more about Lunch Supervision.

If you require your child to stay for lunch on a certain day and they are not a regular lunchroom child, please send a note along with $5.00 drop-in fee to be given to the office saying they are staying for lunch.

What to Bring for Lunch

Students in the lunch program need to bring a lunch from home as there is no cafeteria service at the school. We encourage the use of a thermos for hot lunches as we are unable to provide microwaves and/or hot water due to safety and logistics.

Welcome to the Lunchroom

Just a few reminders for parents whose children are attending the lunch program at our school. Please go over these points with your children, as it will ensure that our program continues to run smoothly and efficiently and that it is a civilized and enjoyable place to eat.

  • Your child’s name should be written on any lunch containers.
  • Remind children to bring their “outdoor” clothing and boots /shoes to lunch so they are prepared to go outside when they have finished eating.
  • Hands should be washed prior to eating lunch.
  • Encourage your child to eat his/her own lunch only. They are not to trade or share food with the other students.
  • Students do not have access to microwave ovens.
  • Talk with your child about what they would like in the lunch and ensure appropriate utensils are included. Any food that your child has not eaten will be sent back home in their lunch bags.
  • Explain to your child how it is their responsibility to clean up by putting wrappers and scraps of food into the garbage and recycling bins provided.
  • Lunch Supervisors are to be treated with respect, as with all people in our school. The adults in our school make decisions for the safety and consideration of everyone.
  • If your child will be attending as a “drop-in”, make sure to call the school before 10:00 AM each morning to let the lunchroom supervisor or the office know.
  • If your child attends the program on a full time basis, please advise the school if they will be absent from the lunchroom. This will avoid supervisors searching for them and then having to call home.

Allergy Awareness - No Nuts Please!

Bayside School strives to be a Nut Free school as we do have students with allergies to peanuts and other types of nuts in the building. Due to the prevalence of nut allergies at our school, we have a Nut Awareness program. Please do not send any food products that may contain nuts (e.g. peanut butter or Nutella sandwiches, cookies, etc.). Please check and read all package ingredients before sending something with your child to school.
