The Expedition School supports healthy eating. Students must bring their lunch to school each day or they may purchase a catered lunch from the school. Students who forget their lunch will be charged $5 for a school-provided lunch.
Student lunches should consist of nutritional food. Candy, pop/soda, and “fast-food” are not acceptable. Students will eat linch in their classrooms or possibly outside on a nice day. Students will have a quiet period during lunch to provide time to actually eat. We all contribute to the cleanliness of the school. Each student is responsible for cleaning up after lunch – this includes their individual waste, as well as the area in which they ate. If a student leaves a lunch at home, the parent may bring it to the office. Reception will deliver the lunch to the classroom.
A snack period will be offered at the discretion of the teacher. Students must bring their own snacks from home as the school does not provide snacks. Teachers may request donations for snack in case there are students in need. Some younger grades may coordinate snack sharing/donations at the discretion of the teacher. Snacks should be nutritional (fruits, vegetables, cheese and crackers, yogurt). Candy, pop/soda, potato chips, cookies or sweets are not acceptable.
Catered lunch is currently being provided by The Bagged Lunch Company. More information regarding ordering and options is coming soon.
