All students have 50 minutes for lunch that will provide sufficient time to eat and have free playtime. To ensure the safety of children, we do not allow these students to leave the school grounds during this time, unless accompanied by a parent. Students are required to provide their own lunch. 

2 Lunch Eating Times

  • 12:30 – 12:54 
  • 12:54 – 1:20

Parents, please remember that if your child needs a spoon or fork with his/her lunch, please send it with them. Also, please note we can no longer provide plastic utensils and we do not have microwaves or hot water available for the students, nor can we be handing out utensils due to COVID protocols. If you are sending something hot for your child’s lunch, please send it in a thermos. Emergency lunches are available in the event the student forgets to bring his/her lunch. If this happens, we appreciate payment of $3.00 be forwarded to the school the following day.

Friday Nutrition Break

Students will eat their snack for 10 minutes and then move outside for a recess break.  

Fun Lunch 

Due to COVID -19, all fun lunch and treat days are postponed until further notice.  If and when our school council is able to recommence this enjoyable opportunity for staff and students, the following will apply.

Once a month our children can order and enjoy a lunch delivered from outside the school. Please register online and order your lunches at least 5 days prior to every Fun Lunch. If you do not order and pay for a Fun Lunch, please send a lunch for your child. No extra orders are available. Contact if you have any questions or concerns. If you have an hour or two to help set up, hand out food or even cleanup afterwards, please email and let Alina know; no experience required. 

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.


We have children at our school who are allergic to nuts and related nut products, we strive to be a Nut-Free School. Parents must indicate any special health concerns on the school registration for their child and are encouraged to ensure classroom teachers are also aware of health issues. For more information about this and other health concerns visit our Illness & Medical page.
