Caveat: VSB Food Guidelines
As COVID-19 has evolved, so have the guidelines for how Hot Lunch Programs can operate throughout the school district. Your PAC Team has worked closely with the school and vendor to ensure that we meet those guidelines. However, we must be flexible and further changes to the program may be necessary from time to time. To date, those changes have been of an administrative and operational nature with no visible impact to your child or yourselves
Important - Reference
- Absent on a Hot Lunch Day – Our policy for is to redistribute unclaimed lunches to students that have a need, in order to reduce waste. The exception is where families have advised the school that they will pick up the lunch (Lunches will be dated and placed in teacher’s freezer for one week prior to composting)
- Division – When ordering your child’s lunch, please ensure you have the correct Division entered. Lunches are delivered to each classroom, based on Division numbers and then distributed to each child
- Spare lunches - Each Hot Lunch Day, the vendor provides some additional spare lunches to cater for any little mishaps. If your child is missing their lunch or drops their lunch, please encourage them to speak to the teacher so the lunch can be replaced with what is available
- Dietary/other Requirements – Please contact the vendor directly for specific changes or requirements to your child’s lunch order
- Utensils - Please remember to pack utensils for your child’s lunch. We only have a limited number of spare utensils for those that forget
- Financial Assistance - As a reminder, if you would like to participate in the Hot Lunch Program but are in need of financial assistance, please email the Vice Principal, Doug Park, at firstname.lastname@example.org (All request will be treated confidently)
We look forward to continuing the successful Hot Lunch Program in 2023/2024. If you have any questions or comments about the Hot Lunch Program, please contact the PAC via email - email@example.com (indicating "Hot Lunch" as your subject).
