Lunchtime

Lunchroom Organization

With the onset of COVID we have implemented a staggered lunch break where students eat and play with only the students in their cohort. All of our Kindergarten, Grade 1, Grade 2 and community Grade 2/3 students take lunch from 11:30 to 12:15. Half of these classes eat inside the building first then go outside to play. The other half go outside to play first, then come inside to eat. This allows for more social distancing and cleaning of the lunchrooms between classes. 

Our Science Grade 3 students and all of the students in Grades 4 and 5 have a lunch break from 12:30 to 1:15. The same protocols are in place as for the younger grades. 

Thank you for supporting us to keep all of the students safe by not packing lunches with nut products. (Please note that Nutella has nut products and should not be sent to school in your child’s lunch.)

Lunch Supervision

All students who attend Valley View School and choose to stay at school for lunch must register for the Lunch Supervision program online and pay a lunch supervision fee. If there is a change of lunch plans for the day please notify the office at 403-777-8250. 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. The office will handle all drop-in fees. Please visit our Lunch Supervision page for information.

Allergies

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.

Students Without Snacks or Lunches

If you require ongoing support to provide more regular snacks and top ups for lunches we ask that you contact the office. The office 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.
