Hot Lunch Program
We will open up hot lunch ordering this week for the rest of this school year. Please look out for a separate email letting you know when to order hot lunch. Please be reminded that there are 2 hot lunch ordering systems; Munch a Lunch (Hot Dog & Sushi Days) and C'est Mon Cafe (catering service). This is not a mandatory program, parents may choose which days they would like to order hot lunch.

On C'est Mon Cafe hot lunch days, please remind students of the following:
1) look for their division number on the lunch tables, they are marked on a white card at each table;
2) their name and division will be on the "order slip" attached to each plate;
3) if they do not see their order or have a problem with their order/think they ordered something else, please approach the server(s) at the front of the room (wearing hair net, mask and gloves) to inquire;
4) once the student has finished their meal, they may approach the servers at the front of the lunch room for another serving of lunch;
5) please remind students who may have food allergies to alert the servers before they try another meal;
6) if students order frozen treats such as popsicles, gelato, ice cream sandwiches, please bring the "order slip" to the hot lunch servers after they have completed their meals to pick up the frozen treat.

For any changes/cancellations/late orders/refunds for C'est Mon Cafe lunch orders, please see this page: http://www.cestmoncafe.com/page2.html

Proposed School Calendar for 2019-20, 2020-21 and 2021-22

Proposed school calendar for 2019-20; 2020-21; 2021-22


The updated proposed school calendar for the next 3 school years has now been posted on the VSB website.  We work closely with our neighbouring districts to ensure alignment of dates as much as possible.


https://www.vsb.bc.ca/Calendars/Pages/School-Year-Calendar.aspx

This calendar includes proposed dates for Winter Break and Spring Break for 2019-20, 2020-21, 2021-22 - as well as proposed dates for Non-Instructional/Professional Days for the 2019-20 school year.


Should parents wish to provide any feedback, they are welcome to do so by emailing calendar@vsb.bc.ca.  Feedback will be received until February 15th, and will be taken into consideration when the calendar is finalized.  We anticipate that the final school calendar will be approved by the Board and published by early March.  Thank you.​

C'est Mon Cafe Hot Lunch 
If anyone would still like to order hot lunch for the rest of January, you may do so up until one day before the hot lunch date. Please see late order information here.Students do not have to commit to all hot lunch dates, however we do ask that parents order & pay once for all the dates they would like instead of day by day to keep the PayPal processing fees at a minimum. You may always "change" your meal after it has been ordered and paid for. Please see how to revise your meal here.

C'est Mon Cafe will set out lunches by division number. Please remind students to look for their division number on the table; the student's name and division number will also be placed on the individual lunch trays. If for any reason students do not see their name by their division number, please approach the servers at the front of the lunch room for assistance. For students in the primary lunch room, lunches will be set out according to where each class sits (with each tray individually labeled by name). 

Students who have ordered hot lunch are invited to return for another serving of lunch (same or different item) while supplies last. While none of the meals contain nuts, please remind your children to tell the servers of any other allergies they may have when returning for seconds. If you have any questions, please send us an email at emilycarrpac@gmail.com
