Lunch & Nutrition
Our school provides a supervised lunch program on a regular or drop-in basis as a fee for service to parents of students in grades 1-6. However, we encourage parents if at all possible to make other arrangements for lunch. Children benefit from a break in school routine.
Lunch program fees collected cover the costs of the noon hour supervision, additional custodial services, and equipment. For example, all outdoor play equipment used during the noon hour, videos and games for rainy days, soap, paper towels and other supplies are paid for with the fees.
Students staying for lunch are expected to behave in a respectful, responsible manner. Students who are not cooperative will be asked to eat their lunch with another class or they may be temporarily or permanently suspended from the lunch program.
Students not in the regular lunch program who stay for lunch to attend a scheduled extra curricular activity will pay the daily fee to attend and be supervised within the lunch program.
Students in grades 7-9 are encouraged to go home for lunch if at all possible. They should not return to school until 12:10 to prepare for afternoon classes. Students needing to stay at school for lunch, will be required to eat in the upstairs common area where they will be supervised by teaching staff.
At Florence Hallock School, we encourage all students to choose healthy snacks and lunches and remain focused on this in the selection of items for our school servery and school fundraising.
