In Budget 2017, the government allocated money to allow school boards the opportunity to establish or enhance a nutrition program. CCS has been chosen to be a part of this program! CCS will be offering healthy lunch options Monday through Thursday. Lunches will be nutritionally balanced, based on the Alberta Nutrition Guidelines for Children and Youth and offered at no cost to K-6 students. Menu options will be sent home with students on a bi-weekly basis and families will be required to sign up in advance to order lunch for specific days, if they wish to participate. Participation in the nutrition program is entirely optional and students can still bring lunch from home. All students will be expected to provide their own lunches on “special days”, such as field trips, swimming lessons, etc. Information regarding these dates will be sent home in advance by homeroom teachers as they are planned. Students should continue to come to school with morning and afternoon snacks if they require them.
