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

Our Service

Pineridge School will be offering the CBE Noon Supervision Service.  If you have not yet registered and wish to do so, please register online through your My CBE / PowerSchool account.

Registering for Noon Supervision

Registration is required for students to confirm that parent/guardians are expecting their child(ren) to remain at school during lunch time.  You can now register and pay online for noon supervision through My CBE / PowerSchool – if you do not have computer/smart phone access you can request a paper form from the school to register. If you have questions please call the school office at 403-777-6750.

Please note that the students that do not stay for lunch may return to school at 12:30 PM, 15 minutes prior to the afternoon bell (no earlier please), when regular outdoor supervision resumes.

Note: We are now a peanut aware school due to allergies. Please do not send products containing peanuts or peanut butter. 

Students will:

  • walk to and from the lunch program.
  • sit at their assigned places and quietly eat lunch.
  • ask permission from supervisors to leave the lunch area.
  • will keep their lunch area neat and tidy. These areas are used at other times of the day by many students and need to be in good condition.
  • will eat the food they have brought with them – exchanging of food with other students is not allowed.
  • will adhere to our safe, cooperative play expectations while on the playground after lunch.
  • will not leave the school grounds at lunch unless they have written parental permission as well as school permission.
