Hot Lunches & Milk Program

the Lunch Box

Our Hot Lunches are offered most Mondays that school is in session. The Monday lunch program provides students with some different alternatives and helps support our community businesses. Organized through our teachers, our Hot Lunch program offers hot lunches on Mondays. The hot lunch online order system requires a small amount of setup time at the beginning as you must register each child you have attending our school prior to ordering hot lunch. Once the initial setup process is complete, your hot lunch orders for the remainder of the year should be quick and simple. Questions? Please email our Hot Lunch committee at stephanie.cardinal@rdcrs.ca or corinne.fontaine@rdcrs.ca

THE LUNCHBOX-Commercial Kitchen http://thelunchboxlady.net/

Our school is fortunate to share the services of a commercial kitchen called THE LUNCHBOX, with École Fox Run School that provides hot lunches to students from Tuesday to Friday every week. The weeks "Daily Specials" for Grades 7 to 9  is found on the Lunch Box's website and Facebook page and for Grades 4-6 the Lunch Box will post the order form mid-month. You can also find these menus/forms on The Lunch Box website. We strongly encourage students in Middle School Grades 7-9 to pre-order their meals daily which can be done every day from 8:15 am until 8:45 am to help speed up the lunch process, shorten wait times in line and to ensure there is enough food. Students may also purchase their lunch at lunchtime directly from The Lunch Box. The kitchen charges reasonable prices for lunches. The Lunchbox is an independent business operating separately from the school.

Please note that The Lunch Box WILL BE OPEN even on the days when buses have been CANCELLED unless Kara deems her route to work unsafe for travel.  If The Lunch Box is closed at any time during regular school hours, Kara will post a message to The Lunch Box Facebook page by 6:30 am.  If your child has a lunch pre-ordered on a day that Kara is unable to open, she will contact you regarding a credit or refund personally.
