Final Reminder – Last Chance for Hot Lunches and School Cash Online

22 Mar

The deadline to sign up for hot lunches online is tomorrow and no extensions will be granted.  If you are having difficulty registering online, please call Mrs. Sacke today at 905-660-3083 to troubleshoot with you.  In the event you are unable to sign up online, your child may pick up a paper copy form from the office before the end of the day.

Parent Council is very much in need of volunteers to help with hot lunches on a Monday or Friday between April and June.  If you can spare an hour on one of these days over the lunch hour, please let the office know.  Thank you.

Hot Lunches and School Cash Online

11 Mar

Hello parents,  this is a reminder to sign up for School Cash Online if you have not done so already to purchase your child(ren)’s hot lunches.  Many parents have already signed up, but we are hoping for many more.  We have emailed out the forms a number of times in case you do not already have them (they were given to students on March 4).  Please check your junk mail if you do not see these emails in your inbox.  If you are having any difficulty registering or need your child(ren)’s student number(s), please contact Mrs. Sacke on March 21 or 22 for assistance.  Deadline to sign up for hot lunches is MARCH 23.

P.S.  We have a limited number of paper hot lunch forms in the office as well.
