Lunch Supervision

The school provides a safe and secure place for students to have their lunch break. All students must be registered in the lunch program to stay at school. Daily drop-in fees are also available.  Roland Michener is not a nut-free school, we are a nut-aware school. Students that go home for lunch may return to school no earlier than 10 minutes before the notification bell rings when additional supervisors are outside.

To help support our lunch program, parents can:

  • Send nutritious lunches in a lunch bag labeled with their child’s name. It is appreciated when students bring their lunch to school in the morning.
  • Help students dress appropriately for the weather with all clothing items clearly labeled.
  • Remind your child not to share food.
  • Inform the school of any allergies and/or medical conditions.
  • Encourage packing litter- free lunches. 

In the event of inclement weather, students will remain in their lunchroom.  Students that go home for lunch should return just before the bell and enter through the front doors as soon as they arrive at school. 

For more information visit our Lunch Supervision page.  


Regular school attendance is crucial for students to get the most out of their experience at Roland Michener School. The team at RMS is committed to supporting all students and families to achieve regular attendance in the 2023-24 school year!

Did you know, that by grade three, students with regular attendance are more likely to read at grade level? And by grade six, regular attendance is a strong predictor of high school completion?

In the Calgary Board of Education, regular attendance is defined as missing less than 10% of school days. You can think of this as missing less than 18 days throughout the year or, on average, missing less than one day every two weeks. Let’s work together to support positive attendance at Roland Michener School this year! 


Please visit our How to Register page for registration details. Please note that the registration process is completed online, but schools can assist with any questions.

​​​​​​​Yellow School Bus Tra​nsportation

Yellow school bus routes for the 2023-24 school year are created o​ver the summer and based on the addresses submitted before the pre-registration deadline in June. Transportation continues to accept registrations after the deadline; however, students are added to the closest existing stop with available space. Processing times could be up to six weeks at the beginning of the school year due to volume.

More information about 2023-24 transportation service levels and proposed fees are posted on the CBE website.

Your bus stop location and time will be available in your MyCBE account by mid-August.

Conditional riders can also register using MyCBE. Applications will be considered after eligible riders registrations have been processed. Should routes change or if qualified students are added to a route and the bus becomes overcrowded, conditional riders may be removed to accommodate these changes.​

Learn more about transportation on the CBE website.
