Nut Free School

West Kent is a totally NUT FREE environment.  Please do not send food to school which contains nuts or nut productsThis includes peanut butter, chocolate bars with nuts, most granola bars (please check the labels), and many commercially made cookies.  It is very important that we have your cooperation in order to keep the school safe for everyone. Please read labels carefully on all items being sent to school as many products you would not suspect do contain nuts. If a product says “may contain nuts” or “made in a facility with nuts” it is not permitted in school, as we have many students with life threatening nut allergies.
This policy also includes peanut butter imitations such as Wow butter, and other nut or seed butters.

Breakfast Program

West Kent Breakfast Program

West Kent is pleased to announce that we now have a Breakfast Program running every morning from 8:00 to 8:20 AM. Any student who wishes to have breakfast at school is welcome to attend the program. The menu includes toast, milk or juice, yoghurt and fruit. Students who wish to participate are asked to go to the breakfast as soon as they arrive at school. Once they have finished eating they are asked to clean up their area, garbage items and return dishes. Students are then expected to go outside until the bell rings, or directly to class if the bell rings while they are still in the Breakfast Program. Respect, manners and gratitude are a must while at the Breakfast Program.

We have been hosting an average of 40-50 students each morning since March Break. Parents or community members are welcome to donate to the breakfast program. We welcome donations of bread, jam, butter, yoghurt, apples, bananas, tangerines or grocery cards. Donations can be left in the main office.

We are looking for parent volunteers to help at the Breakfast Program. Shifts would be from 7:45 to 8:30 AM. If you are interested in volunteering can you please contact our Youth Service Worker, Natasha Hardy at nhardy@edu.pe.ca to commit to a morning or more. It is an opportunity to see the wonderful side of having a breakfast program in our school.
