We provide both internal and external supervision during lunch. There are a variety of activities during the lunch period, including (clubs, homework help, intramurals, etc.). Though we believe staying in a supervised environment is the safest and best choice; we understand that some Parents want to provide permission for their kids to leave campus during the lunch hour for specific reasons.
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 information.
Leaving Campus for Lunch
Students are permitted to leave the campus during lunchtime. The choice to leave campus is a family decision. When students are in the community, they should remember that they are representatives of Harold Panabaker. Respect for others is important when visiting businesses in the community. Students should ensure that they clean up after themselves to respect the environment.
As a number of our students have severe allergies to nuts, including peanuts, we are an Allergy Aware school. We ask for your support in protecting students with allergies by not sending foods containing tree nuts or peanuts to school. For more information about this and other health concerns see our Illness & Medical page.
Fun lunches give our students an opportunity to eat lunch, socialize with their friends at school and take part in special activities. These fun lunches are operated by the School Council, using the Healthy Hunger webpage.
