Download: Lunchroom preorder form Feb 2021
As of September 2020, there cannot be any fundraising specials from groups other than assigned lunchroom staff. This may change if the COVID rules are altered by Alberta Health Services. The lunchroom may run a fundraiser from time to time, but with the COVID rules for food preparation for cafeterias, it is very difficult to have such a fundraiser. All foods ordered from grades one through six, whether regular lunch orders or a SHS fundraiser, will be delivered to the classrooms by school staff.
Starting November 2, the Breakfast Program will provide nutritious food daily to Swan Hills School’s students in grades K-12. Funding for the breakfast is provided through the Alberta government’s School Nutrition Program.
The food will be prepared each morning by volunteers from our staff and community. Community members require a food handling course to volunteer in the kitchen and a staff member must be present as well. All volunteers and staff will be equipped with PPE. The prepared food is provided to all students who choose to participate. There is no cost to parents. The breakfast program’s menu will vary, but will typically consist of cheese strings, bagels (plain or with cream cheese), yogurt tubes, applesauce, fruit, and veggies. Students will choose one of each item. The menu items will be individually packaged and distributed by school staff. Swan Hills School chooses to participate in this program because research shows that there is a direct link between healthy and nutritious eating and academic success.
