Fall Hot Lunches

12 Sep

Good afternoon Brownridge Parents and Guardians,

We are very excited to let you know that School Council has organized hot lunch options for you to purchase for your child at Brownridge. On Mondays, you are able to order chicken fingers and/or pasta and/or Caesar salad. On Fridays you are able to order pizza. The first round of ordering will be from October to December.

Hot lunch options will be available to order beginning Monday, September 16.  They will be available for purchase until Friday, September 27.  To be able to place an order, you must sign up on School Cash Online if you have not done so already to take advantage of this offer (instructions to register are below).  If you require assistance signing up, please contact Mrs. Sacke, 905-660-3083.

Please note: After September 27 (When School Cash online closes), you will not be able to order hot lunches for the October to December ordering period. In this case, you will have to wait until the winter session opens in mid-December if you would like to order hot lunches. From time to time there are some extra items available for purchase on Mondays and Fridays. However, there is no guarantee that there will always be extra food available for purchase. As such, if you choose not to order hot lunches for your child, please send a lunch just in case.

We highly recommend you print or save your confirmation receipt so that you can verify your purchase went through (sometimes things are added to the cart and then the next step of payment is forgotten).

The first hot lunch day this year will be Friday, October 4 for Pizza.  Here are all the dates for the fall hot lunches:

 Pizza: Friday                                                 October 4, 11, 18, 25     November 1, 8, 22, 29     December 6, 13, 20

 Chicken Fingers/Pasta/Salad: Monday   October 7, 28                 November 4, 11, 18, 25   December 2, 9, 16 

School Council works very hard to make Monday and Friday hot lunches a convenient and awesome experience for students at Brownridge. But we need your help. The program cannot run without the support of volunteers. If you can volunteer for one hour on a Monday and/or Friday once a week, once a month, or once a year, we would sincerely appreciate it. Unfortunately if we do not have enough volunteers the program will not be able to run. Please email brownridge.ps@yrdsb.ca if you can spare an hour or more.

 Thank you very much!

The Brownridge Team
