Lunch & Nutrition
To accommodate the medical needs of children with severe allergies at Elmwood School, we promote allergy awareness and have a NUT AWARE policy. The safety of all children is our first priority. Thank you for supporting this policy in the best interest of our children with severe and life-threatening allergies.
As an additional service to parents and caregivers, we are pleased to offer a supervised lunch program for students in grades 1- 6. It is the policy of Edmonton Public Schools that school lunch programs be operated at no cost to the District. The school must recover the costs involved in providing this service.
The school District has made some changes to lunch-time supervision services for next school year:
Starting in the 2016-2017 school year:
- Families will use standard forms to register for lunch, and to apply for a reduced fee if needed.
- Students who pay to take a yellow bus to their designated attendance area school or to a special needs program are exempt from lunch fees. Full-day kindergarten students are also exempt.
- Schools will set lunch fees using a standard formula.
- Students who take the bus to attend Elmwood are still expected to pay lunchroom fees as Elmwood is an alternative program.
Our milk program will continue this year. Students staying for lunch may purcase white or chocolate milk at a cost of .85 cents per carton. Milk cards (with 10 tickets) are available in the office for $7.50. All recycled juice boxes and milk cartons are donated to the Winifred Stewart Society.
