January HotLunches!

The HotLunches menu for January is now open for ordering.  Here are important notes for you to know:

  1.  Ordering will close at midnight on Sunday, December 30th.  This is a two week window to get orders in but it is recommended that you order as soon as you can so it does not get missed in holiday activities.
  2. The January menu covers the dates of Thursday, January 3rd to Friday, February 1st. *Remember to scroll down to see the February 1st date. Don’t forget to click the “Place Order and Proceed” button!
  3. Chocolate milk has gone up in price.  It is now .90 cents.
  4. Farmed Market has new offering for Wednesdays and will be offering a cold lunch option on Fridays that will appear with the Greco choices. Here are some notes on their their new options:  the Beef Burrito is made with 100% PEI beef with rice, corn, tomato, red onion and cheese. The Ham and Cheddar Cheese Sub has just a little butter on the bun. The Turkey Breast Wrap has cheese, lettuce and a little mayo.  All these options come with fruit/veg and a cookie/small homemade baked good.  All options are $4.50 or $5.00 for gluten-free.
  5. Parents should pay for the lunches when they are ordered or send the money in to the office in the first week of the menu.  We are finding that, month to month, there are a number of unpaid accounts and we are having to contact parents for payment before the next menu begins.  We do have to pay the vendors for the orders during the month so orders should be paid when they are ordered.  Please do your best with this.  You will be unable to order until your December lunches are paid.

January HotLunches!

The menu for January HotLunches will be going up this Sunday night and will be open until December 23th.  This will allow parents to get orders in before the holiday break as it may be something that misses your attention with Christmas activities!  January is a long month of lunches with 22 school days so parents will want to get orders in.

There are a number of outstanding accounts that have not yet been paid for December. Parents need to make payment on or before Friday, December 14th or you will be unable to order for January.  It is our expectation that parents pay for the lunches they order each month soon after ordering (with the first week of the schedule) as we do have to pay vendors for the food that is ordered. Please give this your immediate attention.

As well, refunds were made to all accounts for food and milk orders for November 29th and November 30th as those were storm days.  You will see those credits in your accounts.

We will have a change in price for chocolate milk in January (now .90 cents) and more food choices from Farmed Market and Butchery.

Occupational Therapy Services at Greenfield

Parents and guardians will be receiving a letter regarding Occupational Therapy Services.  We will now have Anne-Marie Peters, an Occupational Therapist, at Greenfield Elementary every Day 2.  She will be part of our school team and will be accessible to school staff as well as to parents.  She will spend time in many areas of the school to observe students and provide support for their motor and sensory skills.

This is good news as she becomes part of the supports we have available for our students on a regular basis.

Here is a copy of the letter that parents will receive regarding Occupational Therapy.
