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.

 

Safety on the Streets

The Toronto Police Service is committed to working in partnership with schools, parents, and neighbourhoods to ensure the safety of children as they return to school.  CLICK HERE to find a document which includes useful information about how to keep school zones safe. We encourage you to share this information with your school community.

If you have a parking or traffic complaint, you can make a report through the Toronto Police Service website, www.torontopolice.on.ca.  Click on “Services” tab from the drop down box click on “Citizen Online Report Entry” and scroll down and click on “Driving Complaint” or “Immediate Parking Complaint” and report. 

We are also proving a letter explaining the changes to the The School Crossing Guard Program which take effect this month.
