** We no longer offer cafeteria service at Fairview School.

Lunch is a 41-minute break, beginning at 12:17, unless otherwise stated. All students not involved in a lunch activity must go outside at 12:37.

Lunch Supervision

The Calgary Board of Education provides students with the option to stay at school for lunch. Lunch Supervision is offered to all students in Grades 1- 6 and in our full-day kindergarten programs for an annual fee. Please visit our Lunch Supervision page for more information.

Lunch Procedures

All Students are expected to eat in their designated lunchroom or designated areas and are responsible to lunchroom supervisors and teachers for behaviour during lunchtime. It is the student’s responsibility to keep the school tidy, pick up their garbage and clean their eating area before leaving.  Our school has many recycling bins and composts, so waste should be discarded appropriately.  Please keep food wrapped up in lockers and ensure that uneaten food is disposed of appropriately, or taken home. Students may only use vending machines before or after school, at lunch or nutrition break. 

Grade 4, 5 and 6 students will eat in their homeroom location.   During the second half of lunch they may access the designated outside area for their grade group. They must stay on school property when outside for lunch recess.

Grades 7, 8 and 9 are allowed to leave the school campus during the lunch break.  Although Grade 7– 9 students are not restricted to the school campus for lunch, students are responsible to their parents and the school for their behaviour in the community.  Should they choose to eat their lunch inside, they will eat in the lower gym hallway and lower east hallway area.  Should students choose to exit the building at the beginning of the lunch break they will not be allowed re-enter the school until the end of the lunch break, weather permitting.

On nice weather days, students must go outside during their lunch break if they are not in a teacher supervised activity.

Students are not to be in classes at lunch unsupervised.

During “Bad Weather” please sit in areas indicated as a “Bad Weather Lunch Zone”.

No Slurpees, slushy drinks or ice cream cones in the school.

No disposable cups with lids.


We are an “Allergy Aware” School. Please let us know if your child has food allergies and requires support. For more information about this and other health concerns visit our Illness & Medical page.
