Welcome back to another school year!!
Did you know we have a Hot Lunch Program at Castor Valley that is catered by local companies?
The program is split into two groups: Kindergarten-Gr.3 and Gr.4-8. Each group has a lunch every other Wednesday. The type of meal rotates. You will soon receive a form in your child’s backpack listing all the options.
Our school Lunch Program complies with the School Food and Beverage Policy from the Ontario Ministry of Education that came into effect September 1, 2011 for all Ontario schools www.ontario.ca/healthyschools.
We continue to use Gabriel’s Pizza which offers their pizzas on a nutritional whole-grain thin crust. We will also continue serving Oven-Baked Chicken Fingers (descriptions on the order form) from AJ’s Catering, Subway lunches, the Hot Potato Company with their delicious baked potatoes and Caesar salads, and Red Dot Cafe will be providing Castor Valley with a 16 oz bowl of penne with two choices of sauces (description on the order form). Starting this year, if your child is absent for the day, their lunch will not be kept for the next day nor will it be sent home with a sibling.
Please note if you participate in the Milk Program and order juice (100% fruit juice), your child will receive two drinks that day at the first nutrition break.
So keep your eye on your child’s backpack!
