Lunch Hour Expectations
*Due to COVID safety guidelines students will be eating lunch in their classroom with appropriate safety measures in place. Lunch will be staggered, meaning that part of our student population will eat (in classrooms) while the other part of our population will be outside in grade designated areas, socially distancing and supervised. At the half-way point of lunch, the groups will switch. This practice will continue until we are directed otherwise. Students who live nearby and can go home for lunch, can do so, with signed permission form completed. This main office can be contacted for this form.
Samuel W. Shaw School is a closed campus school, meaning that students stay on site for lunch. Students who go home for lunch every day for the whole school year will need to have parents send in a signed copy of the Off Campus Permission Form to the main office. This form can be picked up at the main office.
Awesome Shawsome Shack
Although many of our students bring their lunch to school, prepared food is also available for purchase from our Awesome Shawsome Shack kitchen. Our snack shack is not intended to be a full service cafeteria and items are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Please check the monthly menu.
As a number of our students have severe allergies to nuts, including peanuts, we are an Allergy Aware school. We ask for your support in protecting students with allergies by not sending foods containing tree nuts or peanuts to school. For more information about this and other health concerns see our Illness & Medical page.
*at this time we are unable to organize Fun Lunches. Fun lunches give our students an opportunity to eat lunch, socialize with their friends at school and take part in special activities. If you are interested in participating in this program, please create an account at Healthy Hunger.
