One of our goals is to increase awareness about the importance of nutrition and its effect on learning. The food available at our school is in keeping with the CBE Nutrition policy.

The lunch program at HDC includes:

Concession / Hot Lunch - The lunchroom program includes a concession and the opportunity to place monthly orders for hot lunches.

Lunches from Home - Students are welcome to pack a lunch and eat at school. Microwaves and hot water are available.

Lunch Space and Activities - The lunchroom, front hallway (with benches) and outside picnic area (when weather permits) are open to students during the lunch hour. The library, computer room and Study Stop are open to students after the first 20 minutes of the lunch hour. The school also has a variety of activities in which students are welcome to participate during lunch hour.

Energy Drinks and other sugar/caffeine laden drinks and candy
We are concerned with the increasing popularity of energy drinks such as Red Bull, Monster and Rockstar. We respectfully ask that students not to bring or consume such energy drinks in our school or prior to coming to school. Additionally, we encourage parents to discuss the impact of these drinks with your child.

Students are expected to behave respectfully and responsibly in the lunchroom and ensure that their garbage and recycling is removed and placed in the recycle/garbage cans provided.


To decrease the likelihood of an emergency medical situation due to allergic reactions, we request that parents avoid sending peanut butter and/or tree nut products to school. For more information on allergies and/or other health concerns visit our Illness & Medical page. 

Fun Lunches

Fun lunches give our students an opportunity to eat lunch, socialize with their friends at school and take part in special activities.
