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. Students in these grades require direct supervision during the lunch hour, regardless of the grade configuration of the school or the mode of transportation the students use to get to and from school each day. 

​Principals have the flexibility to make school-based decisions for their lunch supervision programs.​

You can expect the following for your lunch supervision fees:

  • A safe and caring environment for students to eat lunch.
  • Supervision for the entire lunch period, unless the student is signed out by a parent/guardian.
  • Daily attendance will be taken.
  • Students must remain on school grounds, unless written permission has been provided to the school by a parent/guardian.
  • A dedicated space for eating.
  • Only students that have registered and paid the lunch supervision fee can access the service:
  • The CBE has a waiver process for families who can’t afford to pay the fees.
    • ​Note | Use of service indicates that the Parent/Guardian accepts the terms and the responsibility to pay the annual fee.
    • Income tax receipts are issued for lunch supervision fees that may be included as child care expenses for income tax purposes.
  • Lunch supervision fees are directed to providing lunchroom supervisors.

What lunch service is not: 

  • Guaranteed access to a table and chair or an assigned seat.
  • Access to food or snacks; students are required to bring a lunch.
  • Access to a microwave, hot water, dishes, utensils or other cooking facilities.
​​​​You can register and pay online with MyCBE​.​

Lunch Supervision

Lunch Supervision Program at Manmeet Singh Bhullar School

We offer a lunchroom program for those students who are unable to go home for lunch. This is a user pay system. Check out the CBE website for further details. There is no milk program this year.

Students living in the Martindale community who go home or to their daycare at lunch are not to return to the school play-ground until 15 minutes before bell times, when supervisors go on duty. A Lunchroom Supervision Program is available through the Calgary Board of Education. Parents must register and must pay a yearly fee in order to attend.  Parents can register and pay online (go to MyCBE/PowerSchool). 

Students bring their lunch and are supervised at all times. Lunchroom do not have access to microwaves, boiling water, or oven to heat or warm-up food.

If your child is in the Lunch Program and will be away, please send a message to the school so that the supervision staff are aware. Parents, we remind you to please pack nutritional lunch for your kids. 

Please ensure your child brings his/her lunch with them in the morning. Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are not able to take drop off lunches.

For information regarding lunchroom, fees and payment options, please go to Fees and Waivers on the CBE website.
