As of September 2011, all students are welcome to have lunch at school during the lunch hour at no extra charge. The lunch hour will be 45 minutes in length with 22 minutes assigned for eating and 23 minutes to be outside and active. During the noon hour classroom teachers will be eating with their own students in their classroom. For outdoor supervision, teachers will be supervising in teams on a scheduled rotation. New in 2014/2015 are the split recesses. Students in Grades 1 and 2 eat their lunch first then go outside for some fresh air and movement while the Grades 3 - 5 go outside first for fresh air and movement then return to their classrooms at 12:22 for their lunch before returning to their studies at 12:45.
At the beginning of the school year please inform your child’s teacher as to whether your child will be staying during the noon hour on a regular or occasional basis. At anytime throughout the year if this arrangement changes, please inform your child’s teacher.
