Lunch & Nutrition

Lunch Supervision Program:

At Mayfield school we offer a lunch supervision program for those students that are not able to go home for lunch.  Lunch supervisors have been hired to provide supervision for this service and will do so in the children's classrooms.

Lunchroom fees cover the costs of supervisors’ salaries, extra cleaning and administration costs. Lunchroom fees do not include the provision of food.  Lunch fees are due at the beginning of the month, or at the beginning of the school year and can be paid at the school office. If a student who regularly stays for lunch will be eating somewhere else or a certain day, it is important to let the office know

Here at Mayfield we encourage all students to bring a healthy lunch that contains four food groups and is low in sugar, salt, and unhealthy fats as recommended by Alberta Health Services, for example fruit and yogurt would make an excellent snack while fruit juices tend to be higher in sugars and may not be a healthy choice.  If you have questions about nutrition guidelines for your child please check out healthyalberta.com

Unfortunately we do not have a microwave available for student use, please ensure your child's lunch does not need to be heated to be enjoyed.
