Lunchtime

If there are changes to your child’s regular lunch routine, please call the office
prior to 11:00 AM at (403) 817-3408.

Our students go outside for a movement break during their lunch hour. They are welcome to take a snack outside with them at that time, if it happens to be prior to them eating their lunch in the classroom. Students eat their lunch in the classroom with their lunchroom supervisors.

Please note that microwaves, hot water, and cutlery are not provided.

As the lunch period is a part of the school day, the same behaviour is expected of the children as outlined in the CBE Code of Conduct. The consequence of not following the expectations outlined by the lunch program supervisors will be a phone call to parents, temporary suspension, or permanent removal from the program.

Nut Safe Environment

Some students in our school have serious allergies to products containing nuts. We would appreciate your support in eliminating nut products from foods sent to school. Students are asked not to "swap" or "share" snacks. Because of potential for allergic reactions, it is essential the classroom teacher coordinate any food brought to share.

Fun Lunches

We will be ordering through Healthy Hunger this year for the fun lunches. You can sign your child up at https://www.healthyhunger.ca

  • Oct. 21, 2020

The Lunch Lady

Elbow Park School is getting the Lunch Lady program!  This is a business run by May Hu which delivers lunches ordered online by parents to the school every Thursday.  This is in addition to the special lunch program and is different in that the choices are a bit more "everyday" (pancakes, mac & cheese, grilled cheese etc.) and also it does not require volunteers. As of Nov. 1, 2019, The Lunch Lady will be serving most of their food in compostable containers - this will make a huge reduction in the amount of waste that this program was generating in our school.

Orders must be placed by the Tuesday prior to delivery.

To order, go online to www.thelunchlady.ca, click on "order now" and follow the instructions to set up an account, order and pay.  Orders are due each week by Tuesday at midnight. If your child is sick on delivery day, email May Hu by 8 a.m. to receive a credit to use another time.

Download the menu and more information in the right margin.

For any questions you can contact May directly at may@thelunchlady.ca, or the EPS parent coordinator for the program (Sarah Cherry) at bonderuds@hotmail.com.

RT @CMOH_Alberta: Effective today parents & guardians in AB can access their children’s COVID-19 results via MyHealth Records, enabling them to receive their children’s test results more quickly. Once a child is tested, parents can log in & see the results as soon as they’re available, 24/7. (5/8)
