If your child is not eating his/her lunch please talk to the classroom teacher who will work with the lunch supervisor.
While lunchrooms are not supervised by teachers they are the key contact and can help to support the lunch staff and your child.
All students who attend Queen Elizabeth School and choose to stay at school for lunch must register for the program online and pay a lunch supervision fee. Please visit our Lunch Supervision page for information.
If there is a change of lunch plans for the day please send a note in the agenda or call the office at 403-777-6789. Students must be “signed out” either in person or with documentation clearly dated and signed by a parent/guardian. Students not registered, but who would like to stay on occasion can pay a $5 drop-in fee. A receipt will be issued for this fee. Mrs. Downs will handle all drop-in fees.
Optional Fun Lunch Days
School Council hosts 6 to 8 Fun Lunch events each year. You can order and pay for Fun Lunches online through Healthy Hunger. Instructions to register, order and pay can all be found on the Healthy Hunger website.
Please be aware several students have a potentially life-threatening allergy to peanuts. For more information about this and other health concerns visit our Illness & Medical page. Our preference is to send nut-free products in all school lunches.
Students Without Snacks or Lunches
If students forget their snacks we will generally not be providing an alternative. Missing out on a snack for one day is not harmful. If students forget their lunches we will call home to see if family members can bring a lunch. If not we will work to locate a light alternative.
If you require ongoing support to provide more regular snacks and top ups for lunches we ask that you contact Mrs. Marr. She will work closely to establish the best plan for supporting food needs at school. We are here to support all children to ensure they have access to regular nutritious snacks and lunches.
We ask all students to take home all their left over food items so that you can help to monitor what they are eating or not eating at school. Sharing food items between students is discouraged because of nutrition/allergy needs and concerns.
Currently, due to COVID-19 response, we ask that all lunches are pack-in, pack-out with limited items needing to be discarded or composted.
