The Lunch Program is run by the Clifton School Parent
Advisory Council. There is a monthly fee for each child who stays for
lunch. There are microwave ovens available for heating the children's
lunches on certain days. If lunches are to be heated in the microwave, please
send lunches in microwave containers. Although the lunch program has no
particular regulations about the types of food the children bring, the school
strongly encourages students to bring healthy lunches to school.
Applications for the lunch program may be obtained
from the school office.
Periodically children are asked to stay for lunch to
take part in activities initiated by the school (e.g. field trips, sports
events, etc.). On these days there is no lunch fee required, and the children
who are not in the lunch program will make arrangements with the person in
charge of the activity about where to eat lunch.
PLEASE NOTE: Registration must be completed and 10
post-dated cheques attached to attend the lunch program. Cheques are to
be dated the first day of each month. Any child who attends the lunch
program more than two times a month will be asked to provide post-dated cheques. Payment
options are available for special circumstances. Please request this when
completing the registration package.
Lunch program payments should be put into a sealed envelope
labelled with your child's name and put into the lockbox outside the general
office. Please do not give the payments to school office staff or hand
them to lunch program staff who are on duty.
