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.

Staggered Lunch 

We have a staggered lunch to support outdoor play at Marion Carson School (half the students go outside for outdoor movement time, while all others eat their lunch inside the building. Students then switch for the second half of the lunch hour to either eat their lunch or go outside

CBE staff are on site to supervise students in the classroom during the lunch hour. Students who live within the walk zone and/or ride the bus must pay a yearly fee as determined by the CBE. 

Lunch passes may be purchased in the office for part-time users.

Emergency lunch care is available. There is also a drop-in program for a $5 drop-in fee per day. You may contact the office at the number above regarding any lunchroom matters. 

Milk Program 

We currently offer an optional milk program for students. There is fee for this service and we will communicate this fee to you in the Fall.  Please note that we do not sell milk by the individual container at lunchtime. If you're interested in joining the program after October 1, please ask the office for information it will be pro-rated for the month your child starts.

Lunchroom Rules 

  1. Hands and feet to oneself. Limits play fighting and jostling about that often leads to more aggressive behavior.
  2. Inside voices and appropriate audience behaviors. Shows respect for others, sharing the space.
  3. Walk-don’t run. Ensures the safety for all in confined areas.
  4. No wandering about while eating-stay seated. This promotes cleanliness/courtesy.
  5. Display common courtesies and no obscene language. A way of expressing oneself in a learning environment or public place.
  6. Leaving your space as you found it. Taking ownership for your action.

No Glass Please

Glass containers (including water bottles) should not be sent to school with student lunches. Children do have accidents and glass is a safety hazard. 


It’s important that parents know that there are many children in the school who have severe allergies to various food items. We have processes in place to support students when made aware of these allergies. Please be sure to complete a student health plan stating this information.  Please be sure that you remind your child to remember to take care, while in the lunchroom or at recess, and to not share their food with others.
