Lunch Hour Procedures

Students eat their lunch in the classrooms and are supervised while they eat from 11:30 to 12:00 AM or from 12:00-12:30PM. To help students eat their lunch, they are encouraged to practice “10 Mindful Mouthful”. This means that they are encouraged to eat quietly for the first 10 minutes. This encourages students to eat most or all of their lunch.

Students need to clear their space and pack out their food remnants, litter and recyclables and bring them home. We ask that all garbage be brought back home to be disposed of. During lunch, students need to remain seated and follow lunchroom expectations. We do not have microwaves for students and parents should provide any utensils required for lunch.  Any donations of utensils are welcome:)

  • Students are supervised outside until 12:30 PM.

Lunch Supervision 

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. Please visit our Lunch Supervision page for information.

Special Lunches

Special Lunches are set up in Healthy Hunger and are ready for ordering! Please contact our Assistant Principal Sheri Bullough or our parent volunteer Diana Samborski at for any questions or concerns that you may have.  


Making lunch day after day can get tedious, so William Reid hosts a monthly “Special Lunch,” where we order-in instead.
The children love the break from the monotony as well! 

Who can Order

Students in Grades 1 to 4 are eligible to purchase lunches through the Special Lunch program. Kindergarten students are not eligible, due to the nature of the students attending school for half-days on Thursdays. If your child attends childcare with Seeds of Spice, during the school’s designated lunch time, they will be able to place an order.

Dates & Times 

Special Lunches will be delivered on Thursdays each month. Lunch is either 11:30 to 12:00PM or 12:00PM - 12:30PM.

Days are: February 24, March 17, April 28, May 26, June 16 2022

How to Order

For several years we’ve used a free online ordering tool called Healthy Hunger, which enables parents to place individual orders with a wide variety of vendors. Go to or the image on the right and click where it says “Parents.” Follow the directions from there. There is also an instruction sheet under Resources on this page.


Please be aware that students may have allergies to things like tree nuts and that these allergens should not be brought to school. Parents of children with allergies must fill out appropriate forms. See more on our Illness & Medical page.
