Grade 5 and 6 students will eat their lunches in their homeroom classrooms for the first 20 minutes of the lunch break. These students are to remain on campus for the duration of the lunch break unless there is written permission to the teacher and the main office stating that the student may leave at lunch. The letter of permission must include the dates or range of dates for which the student is permitted to leave the school at lunch and must be signed by a legal guardian.

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 information. 

Leaving the School Grounds at Lunch

It is preferred that a parent or guardian comes to the school to pick up Grade 5 and 6 students in order to ensure their safety and security. Grade 5 and 6 students are expected to go outside during the last 20 minutes of the lunch break in order to get some fresh air and physical activity. Staff will remind students to dress appropriately for the temperature and weather conditions outside; however it is the student’s responsibility to wear proper attire and to use the washroom before heading outside. 

During this 20-minute period, access to the interior of the school will be limited in order to accommodate duty of care. While outside at lunch, Grade 5 and 6 students must remain on school property under the direct supervision of school staff. Students will be able to stay inside during times of inclement weather (at the school’s discretion) or when outside temperatures fall below -20 degrees Celsius.

The same policies apply to all Grade 7-9 students however they are not required to remain at school during the lunch break and once they leave, they will not be allowed back into the school until the lunch break is over.

Fun Lunches

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