Nut-Free Zone and Food Allergies

 

We want to remind all our families to please ensure that they are sending snacks/food items that are made in a peanut & tree nut-free facility. This will help reduce the risk of a student having an anaphylactic reaction to a serious nut allergen. Please take a moment to talk with your child about the importance of NOT sharing any snacks/food items with others as this can pose a risk to students with serious allergies.

 

Lunchrooms

 

We offer supervised lunchrooms at Jackman. Our Grade 1-3 students eat on the first floor at tables in the General Purpose Room (GPR). There are 2 Lunchroom Supervisors to supervise. Our Grade 4-6 students eat at their desks in their classrooms on the third floor. There are 3 Lunch Room Supervisors to supervise. All students eat lunch from 11:35-11:55 AM, and then go outdoors to play in our supervised school yard, from 11:55-12:45 PM. We remind students to follow school rules, be respectful, responsible, and kind. As we have students with severe allergies to nuts, we remind all families that there are to be no nut products included with lunches (e.g. no peanut butter). We are also a Platinum Eco School, and we follow a Boomerang and Litter-less Lunch programs (any food uneaten at lunch goes home, and any lunch wrappers or garbage also goes home - we encourage the use of recyclable containers for lunch). Some of our families prefer to have their child(ren) go home for lunch with a family member or caregiver. We also have some families who have their Daycare provider pick up their child at school and have them eat lunch at their Daycare. Please ensure that you have communicated with your child's teacher if your child is to go home or is picked up by Daycare.

Hot Lunch Program

 

We welcome "Lunch Mom" as a new provider for families who wish to subscribe to a hot lunch program. The program will be offered on Monday, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and families are asked to send in the appropriate forms to the school (sent home with the Back to School package on September 5), along with the required payment, to participate in this program. Forms are available in the office.

 

Grade 6 Friday Lunch Option

 

Our Grade 6 Friday Lunch Option, a long standing tradition at Jackman. A reminder to all our students and families that Friday Lunch is a time for students to represent their school in their community with independence, responsibility, and respect.

 

Lost and Found

 

We have relocated our Lost and Found. To find a lost item, please check in the South stairwell (close to the Library) on the shelves under the stairs. We will remind students to check the Lost and Found once a week, and at the end of every four weeks we will clear out the Lost and Found. Please check the Lost and Found if your child has misplaced an item.

 

Item Drop Off

 

We have set up a drop-off table outside the office to help manage materials that have been forgotten at home, such as a lunch bag or class project or book. Please drop-off any item on the table, and students will know to come and check the table for a forgotten item. We will share this information with our students at our Welcome Back Assembly on September 7.
