Lunchtime

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. 

Teacher supervision ensures student safety for 15 minutes before school begins in the morning and in the afternoon. Students who are not enrolled in the lunch supervision program are not to arrive at school until 15 minutes before the afternoon bell rings. Students are encouraged to arrive at that time so that they can have some time to socialize with friends and begin their academic day promptly.

Lunch Time Return 

We have some of our students returning early to school at lunchtime so they can play with their friends over the lunch break. Please remind them that if they are not in the lunch program they may return only 15 minutes before the afternoon bell rings. Only the students who stay at school for lunch should be outside for the first half hour of lunch.

Allergies | Peanut Aware School

We request that peanuts or food containing peanuts do not come to our school. See our Illness & Medical page for more allergy information. 

Healthy Lunches

On average a child or youth taking a lunch to school will throw away packaging that can create 30 kilograms/67 pounds of litter in a school year. It’s clear that lunches with less packaging will help reduce this litter, but they are also a chance to pack healthier foods. Some pre-packaged foods can have more sugar, salt, and fat than foods you choose and package yourself. Also, these ready-to-go options may not have a lot of fibre, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Here’s one idea to reduce litter and pack a healthier lunch. Instead of buying a small pre-packaged lunch with meat and cheese, a fruit drink or pop, and a candy bar, try this tip:

  • In reusable containers pack whole grain crackers, lean meat, low-fat cheese and  water in a reusable water bottle or container with a piece of fruit or cut vegetables Choosing whole grain crackers, bread or wraps and fruit or vegetables provides more fibre. You may reduce fat by choosing lean meats and low-fat cheese. Sending water instead of sugar sweetened drinks or juice reduces sugar intake, as well as limiting packaging waste.
