NEW Lunch Program

We are starting the school year with a change to our lunch programs. Real Food for Real Kids is no longer operational, and we are changing from Lunch Lady to Rose Reisman’s School Lunch Program – www.kidslunch.ca.

 

We will be piloting it on Fridays for 6 weeks.  The first lunch will be on Friday, September 27.  Registration is now open!  CLICK HERE for registration info, or look for the flyer in your child’s backpack.  School Password: HPS111

If the program is successful with families, we will be providing additional days throughout the week. All the food is purchased locally and made in a nut free kitchen.  Orders can be made online and lunches will be delivered to our lunchrooms.  For every meal purchased, Parent Council receives $.25 towards fundraising.

 

Back to School

Welcome Back!  School resumes Tuesday, September 3, 2019.

You will be notified of your child’s class by e-mail on Friday, August 30 in the late afternoon.  Please do not call the school.  The e-mail will be sent from Principal Simona Emiliani.  If by Friday evening you have not received an e-mail (and all parents/guardians have checked their e-mail and Junk Mail folders), then you can e-mail communications@humbercrestcouncil.ca to update your e-mail address and have class information sent to you over the weekend.  School staff will also be on hand Tuesday morning to provide teacher/class info.
