IMPORTANT Change to the Hot Lunch Program

Due to lack of volunteers with the hot lunch program, there are some changes that needed to be made to the number of days that lunch will be offered to the students.

  • Our Monday/Wednesday kindergarten class along with our grades 1, 3, 5, 7 & 9 students will have the opportunity to order for Wednesdays
  • The Tuesday/Thursday kindergarten class and the grades 2, 4, 6, & 8 students will be able to order for Thursdays
  • Then on Fridays all of the grades 1 to 9 students will be able to order a specialty soup

As this is a significant change from previous years, please ensure that your children have lunches on the other days and that your calendars are marked accordingly.

Also . . . for the month of October . . . there was a timing issue of when lunches were ordered vs. when the schedule for Play Parkland went out – if you ordered Fundraising Lunch for your grade 3, 4, 5, or 6 student for any of the Mondays in October, and they are scheduled to attend Play Parkland that day they will NOT receive their lunch in time before they leave on the bus. Please be sure to send a lunch for them that day as we are governed by Alberta Food Handling Guidelines and are not allowed to keep food for later delivery.

  • Monday, October 16 – Grade 3 & 4 to Play Parkland
  • Monday, October 23 – Grade 5 & 6 to Play Parkland
  • Monday, October 30 – Grade 3 & 4 to Play Parkland

We apologize for the mix up and thank you in advance for your co-operation with this matter.

  1. Yes, we are sad for this as well, but without volunteers to run the program it cannot function. This is the compromise that the committee came up with and we are grateful for this and for the parent volunteers that do come in. Thank you.

  2. There will not be a refund for lunches missed due to field trips or illnesses. The lunches will be saved till the end of the day and handed out to the kids by the teacher. I have blocked off field trips ( the ones I know in time) for the rest of the school year.

  3. So they will receive their lunches late on the 16Th and 30Th or do parents need to send lunches and be reimbursed?

  4. The students received their lunches at the end of the day today when they returned from Play Parkland.

  5. I’m assuming parents will be refunded the lunch money for the play parkland as we did not have that info prior to paying for the hot lunch.
