Lunchroom Absence Line: 403-777-6500, ext. 4
If your child will not be attending the lunch program for any reason, provide a note or phone call to Vanessa Sadler
(Lead Supervisor) at the number above.
There are two lunch shifts, each containing approximately half of the children. The groups switch lunch times monthly. For example, students who start September with an 11:15 lunch will switch to a 11:38 lunch in October. The following are lunch times observed from Monday to Thursday.
- Lunch 11:15 – 11:38 followed by Recess 11:38 – 12:02
- Recess 11:15 – 11:38 followed by Lunch 11:38 – 12:02
A form will be sent home in October and families will have the opportunity to pre-purchase milk for their student. Students will receive their milk in class and will bring it to the lunchroom. (Pricing will be indicated on the forms sent home.)
Nutrition Break Friday
On Fridays we dismiss for the day at 12:15 pm. Teachers provide an extended nutrition break mid morning. Remember to provide your children with a “super snack” to ensure that good learning can occur all morning.
The lunchroom provides a seating area specifically for children with nut allergies. Do let us know if you have particular concerns that require accommodation. For more information, see our Illness & Medical page.
Reduce, Reuse and Recycle
We ask that you provide reusable containers for lunch items rather than throw away paper, plastic, or foil. No glass containers please and send utensils from home for your child’s lunch if needed. Hot water is available, but we do not have access to microwaves for warming lunches. Heated lunches, should be sent in a thermos so that your child can carry his/her own hot soup to their respective table. Lunchroom supervisors will help open the thermos if a child needs help. Also send utensils with your child.
