尊敬的Hoffman女士,

我写这封信是为了表达我对Jamieson小学的普通话双语课程和弦乐课程的担忧。去年,我们经历了一年前所未有的变革,我认为这已经让我们学校有所倒退,并破坏了原先这些优秀课程。在我开始阐述之前,我想提请您注意这些变化的背景。

行政混乱:两年内三名校长

一年前,我们当时的校长Carrie Sleep意外地从Jamieson小学转到Quilchena小学。从那以后,我们历经两位新的校长–2018年初的Chris Wong和本月的Natasha Miladinovic, 并在2017年加入了新的副校长,以及几位新的行政助理。我们的新校长目前面临艰难处境,她加入了一个总共不超过两年的相当新的行政团队。对任何一个人来说,这都是一个充满挑战的环境。展望未来,我们需要稳定这所学校的行政环境。

学区学科前景渺茫

普通话课程仍处于不稳定状态。家长们担心的问题就是该课程将经历第二次的年度报名人数减少,它仍然容易受到学区内入学人数的影响,如果听之任之,该项目从短期或长期来看都将面临风险。今年9月,普通话课程项目仅招收到14名四年级学生,而前几年约为40多名。这是由于幼儿园的需求增加而学位却不足。该项目从五个班缩减至四个班。另一方面,该项目的录取标准在未事先通知或与申请人沟通的情况下擅自进行了更改,并且令人震惊的是这一决定并没有询问普通话教学团队的意见。

如您所知,普通话课程项目专为47年级不会说普通话的学生而设计。高强度的普通话教学工作需要具备较强英语素养的人(由于减少1000学时的英语语言艺术)。该项目采用评估程序确定最适合的申请人,并对所有新生一视同仁。

新的录取规则取消了筛选流程,无需经评估,直接通过抽签决定。这种意外的改变让教学环境更加充满了挑战。教师们需疲于应付不同读写能力和语言背景的学生。在这一变化发生之前招聘合格的教师已属不易,现在由于教师需要增加更多课程以适应不同程度的学生而使招聘工作变得更加棘手。结果导致抢手的普通话教师正在渐渐离开该项目,这也进一步加剧了目前教师短缺的情况。随后学生们在竞争激烈的环境中只能获得更少的个性化指导,尤其是在学习像普通话这样本就具有挑战性的语言时更是雪上加霜。这对学生们来说也是一种伤害。

家长和老师的担忧被简单驳回更加加剧了这一问题的严重性。在向VSB发出许多信函后,我们被告知家长和利益相关者将参与讨论出潜在的解决方案,并进行学区计划审查。经过几个月徒劳的跟进,上述承诺均没有实现。对于过去一年努力与VSB接触但未获得有关明年普通话招生信息的家长来说,这是非常令人失望的。这些情况导致在行政过渡期间失去了两位备受好评和经验丰富的普通话教师。

由于普通话课程的申请截止日期在131日结束,我们正在寻求VSB的承诺,希望将该课程恢复到原先的规模。家长希望了解进展情况,并成为学区计划审查的一部分。我们想要公开透明。作为该项目的利益相关者,家长可以进行有意义的对话。我们要求参与其中。最重要的是,我们希望在Jamieson和该学区了解VSB对普通话项目及其未来计划的愿景。

VSB缺乏对已获成功的弦乐团项目的支持

Jamieson的弦乐团项目是另一个值得关注的领域。该项目的核心是屡获殊荣的高级弦乐团。作为课外团体,高级管弦乐团曾在音乐节和比赛中作为重要嘉宾表演。他们获得了20多张金牌证书和众多奖杯。2016年,Jamieson在加拿大CBC组织的加拿大音乐课挑战赛中名列前茅,从加拿大1000多个小学和中学中脱颖而出。此处请停下来想一想:这些成绩是由一个公立学校的课外小组所取得的。这应该是VSB的骄傲。然而,高级弦乐团项目的未来似乎充满了不确定性。自成立17年来第一次没有试奏,高级管弦乐队的出场机会大大减少(仅限邀请参加),排练次数也大幅降低。

包括Pops管弦乐队,6年级高级管弦乐队和7年级高级管弦乐队在内的高级弦乐团深受学生们喜爱。绝大多数学生参加这些管弦乐队中的一个或多个。18年前,该项目的音乐总监詹姆斯·科尔皮茨(James Colpitts)先生提出了开设该课程,为学生在课外提供额外的学习时间和表演机会。学生们抓住机会,迎接挑战,并超出预期。他们令人印象深刻的成就源于学生和老师在课前和课后付出的无数个小时的练习和准备。

到底发生了什么?多年努力的结果遭遇资源减少和时间不足。在2015-2016赛季,学区乐队和弦乐队预算削减时Jamieson损失了0.20 FTE资金用于高级弦乐项目。我们很幸运,其他学校已完全失去了他们的音乐课程。自2015年以来,Colpitts先生每年提供约300个志愿服务小时,以维持高级弦乐团的高水准利用放学前的时间,课间和午休时间试听和排练,以及花费数百小时进行音乐安排,准备和管理。今年他不情愿地将志愿服务时间减少到不到50小时/年,以达到更平衡的安排。他仍然致力于并愿意带领管弦乐队获得更多支持。 Jamieson家属尊重他的决定。我们也非常感谢他对该项目的出色贡献和支持。学生们已准备好拿起他们的乐器。目前缺少的是 VSB对音乐教育支持的承诺。Jamieson的高级弦乐项目应该成为鼓励其他学校取得优异成绩的典范,不应视为是可以取消的例外。

在目前的预算模式框架内,高级弦乐团项目每年都面临压力,难以为继。我们需要恢复因预算削减而损失的资金。我们正在寻求VSB来支持高级管弦乐队,以保护Colpitts先生的时间和空间,以便他和学生们都能继续他们的工作。

我们需要您的支持

普通话和弦乐项目体现了Jamieson令人羡慕的学习环境。学生有动力学习,教员与学生紧密联系并激励我们的孩子们,这一环境是由支持它的管理机构和家长社区共同营造的。除了音乐和语言,学生还要学习勤奋和纪律的价值,以及重要的生活技能。他们的榜样是他们的老师,以身作则的每个人。学生自己也是其他孩子尤其是更年轻的学生的榜样。在公共教育领域,它已是最好的教育。

当我们鼓励我们的孩子发掘他们的潜力并追求他们的梦想时,我们必须保护这些激发他们激情的项目。我们的孩子尽了自己的一份力量,让我们和学校感到自豪。现在轮到我们迎接挑战,确保未来的学生也能获得同样的机会。

Superintendent of Schools

Vancouver School Board, School District #39

1580 West Broadway, Vancouver, BC  V6J 5K2

Dear Ms. Hoffman,

I am writing to express my concerns about the state of the Mandarin Bilingual Program and the Strings Program at Jamieson Elementary. Last year, we experienced a year of unprecedented change which I believe has set our school back and undermined these outstanding programs.  Before I begin, I want to bring to your attention the background against which these developments unfolded.

Administrative Disarray: Three School Principals in Two Years

A year ago, our then principal Carrie Sleep was transferred unexpectedly from Jamieson Elementary to Quilchena. Since then we have had two new incoming principals – Chris Wong in early 2018 and Natasha Miladinovic this month – gained a new Vice Principal in 2017, and several new administrative assistants. Our new principal arrives at a difficult time and she joins a fairly new administrative team with no more than two years of organizational history combined. It is a challenging set of circumstances for everyone. Going forward, we need to stabilize the administrative environment for this school.

Vulnerable Future for District Program

The Mandarin program remains in a precarious state. It continues to be a source of concern for parents – that the program will experience a second year of reduced intake, that it remains vulnerable to in-catchment enrolment, and left unchecked, the program’s immediate and long-term future may be at risk. This past September, the program received only 14 students in Grade 4, down from roughly 40+ in previous years. This was due to increased demand for kindergarten spots and a lack of space. The program dipped to four divisions, reduced from five. In another blow, the program’s admission criteria were changed without advance notice or communication to applicants, and alarmingly no consultation with the Mandarin teaching team.

As you know, the Mandarin program is designed for Grade 4 to 7 students who do not speak Mandarin. The intense Mandarin work involved requires those with strong English literacy (due to the loss of 1,000 hours of English Language Arts). The program has employed an assessment process to identify the best-suited applicants and places all incoming students on an equal footing.

The new admission rules removed the screening process. It introduced admission by lottery, without assessment. This unexpected change creates a more challenging learning and teaching environment. Teachers are stretched thin to attend to students with a wider range of literacy skills and language backgrounds. Recruitment of qualified teachers, already a challenge before these changes, is further complicated by the increasing demands on the teachers for more lesson planning to accommodate the disparity in skill set among the program’s students. Mandarin teachers are leaving the program as a result, when they are most in demand, exacerbating the ongoing teacher shortage. Students then receive less personalized instruction in a setting that competes for attention, already made difficult when learning a language as challenging as Mandarin. This is a disservice to students.

To compound this issue further, parents and teachers’ concerns were simply dismissed. After many letters to VSB, we were told that potential solutions would be explored, parents and stakeholders engaged, and a district program review conducted. Following months of follow up to no avail, none of these commitments came to fruition. It has been extremely disappointing for parents who made significant efforts to reach out to VSB in the past year and received no information about plans for next year’s Mandarin intake. These developments capped off an already challenging and disruptive period which resulted in the loss of two well-regarded and experienced Mandarin teachers amidst administrative transition.

As the application deadline for the Mandarin program reaches a close on January 31st, we are seeking a commitment from VSB that the program will be restored to its full size. Parents want to be kept apprised of developments and be a part of the district program review. We want transparency. As stakeholders in the program, parents can contribute towards a meaningful dialogue. We ask to be included. Most of all, we want to understand VSB’s vision for the Mandarin program and the plans for its future, at Jamieson and in the district.

Lack of VSB support for the Successful Strings Program

Jamieson’s Strings Program is another area of concern. At the heart of the program are the award-winning advanced strings orchestras. As extracurricular groups, the advanced orchestras have performed for dignitaries, at music festivals and competitions. Their collection of 20+ gold certificates, and numerous trophies speak for themselves. In 2016 Jamieson took top spot in CBC’s Canadian Music Class Challenge, rising above 1,000 entries from elementary and secondary schools across Canada. Pause for a moment and consider this: these accomplishments by an extracurricular group in a public school.  This should be a point of pride for the VSB. However, the future of the advanced strings program appears uncertain. For the first time in 17 years, auditions were absent, the number of advanced orchestra spots reduced (admission by invitation only), and far fewer rehearsals.

Advanced strings including the Pops orchestra, the Grade 6 Advanced and 7 Advanced orchestras are much loved by students. The vast majority of students participate in one or more of these orchestras. It was conceived by the program’s music director James Colpitts 18 years ago to offer students additional time and performance opportunities outside of school hours. Students seized the opportunity and have risen to the challenge beyond expectation. Their impressive accomplishments follow countless hours of practice and preparation before and after school by students and the teacher.

What happened? The culmination of years of making ends meet with reduced resources and insufficient time. In 2015-2016 Jamieson lost 0.20 FTE funding for advanced strings during budget cuts to district band and strings. We were fortunate, other schools lost their music program entirely. Since 2015, Mr. Colpitts has given approximately 300 volunteer hours/year just to keep the advanced strings afloat – time before school, recess and lunch breaks for auditions and rehearsals, plus hundreds of additional hours for music arrangements, preparation and administration. This year he is reluctantly reducing his volunteer hours to fewer than 50 hours/year to strike a more balanced approach. He remains committed and willing to lead the orchestras with additional support. Jamieson families are respectful of his decision. We are also immensely grateful for his extraordinary contributions and support of the program. The students are ready to pick up their instruments. Missing from the puzzle is the VSB’s commitment to do its part for music education. Jamieson’s advanced strings program should be a model to inspire other schools to excel, not considered an exception that could be eliminated.

Within the current prep model framework, the advanced strings program is under pressure each year and it cannot be sustained. We need to restore the funding lost to budget cuts. We are seeking the VSB to support the advanced orchestras, to protect Mr. Colpitts’s time and space so he can continue his work, and the students can do theirs.

We Need Your Support

The Mandarin and Strings programs exemplify the enviable learning environment at Jamieson. Students are motivated to learn, staff connect and inspire our children, and the environment is framed by a supportive administration and parent community. Beyond music and language, students learn the value of hard work and discipline, important life skills. Their role models are their teachers; individuals who lead by example. The students themselves serve as role models for other children especially the younger students. It is education excellence at its best, in public education.

When we encourage our children to explore their potential and to pursue their dreams, we are compelled to safeguard these very programs that sparked their passions. Our children have done their part to make us and our school proud. It is our turn to rise to the challenge and ensure future students have the same opportunities.

Sincerely,

Grace Chan

尊敬的Fraser女士和Chan-Pedley女士,

我是Jamieson小学的一名家长。我对弦乐课程以及备受赞誉的音乐课程即将消失深表关注。

由于我们的音乐老师,学生和家长的非凡努力,Jamieson很荣幸能拥有屡获殊荣的高级弦乐团课外活动。 温哥华地区的其他学校也被迫失去类似的课程。 我们需要您的帮助来阻止Jamieson面临同样的命运。

我们的老师热衷于向学生灌输音乐的乐趣。他用自己数百小时的时间(每年总计惊人的300小时的志愿服务时间)来支持高级弦乐团。学生们可以随时随地进行试听和排练,包括课前和课后,课间休息和午休。他们充满热情,并积极参与该项目。

然而,这是17年来的第一次,我们的老师不情愿地将他的志愿服务时间减少到每年50小时。他已经尽一切可能维持这个项目,但仅靠他个人的奉献精神并不能使一个项目建立在空中楼阁上。

我们为什么如此关注?

  • Jamieson是加拿大最大的学校弦乐团项目所在地。
  • 在学生参加4年级的课程之前,许多人从未演奏过弦乐器。
  • 7年级,他们将学会演奏超过100首乐曲,并在十几场音乐会上演出,配备了远远超过他们年龄的高阶音乐技巧。

该项目最大限度地体现了卓越的教育。 20年来,它对学生的生活产生了积极的影响。 它的声誉将远近的家庭吸引到我们学校。 Jamieson的毕业生也在Lord ByngMagee中学的著名音乐学校也大受欢迎。 我们应该庆祝它的成功,而不是看着它消失。

  • 短期结果:没有试奏,高级管弦乐团学生数量减少,排练时间大幅减少。
  • 长期损失:
  • 让一个能够证明学生成功的项目置于危险境地。VSB继续置之不理将伤害这个无可替代的计划。
  • 中学已经受到预算削减的不利影响虽然他们努力招募年轻的音乐家, 将继续看到他们自己的管弦乐队逐渐减少。
  • 当教育工作者和家长关心学生的社会和心理健康时,孩子们常常被批评使用屏幕时间过长。失去一个完善的音乐课程将不利于解决这些问题。

高级弦乐团项目是一个非凡的团队,需要一个非凡的解决方案。如果没有VSB的紧急干预,这些管弦乐团将会消失。我们需要什么?支持我们的高级管弦乐队。在Jamieson和所有VSB学校倡导卓越的音乐教育。恢复音乐课程的预算资金。

谢谢,

Dear Ms Fraser and Ms Chan-Pedley, 

I am a parent at Jamieson Elementary. I am deeply concerned about the Strings Program and the potential demise of an acclaimed music program.

Jamieson is proud to have an award-winning Advanced Strings extracurricular program, thanks to the extraordinary efforts of our music teacher, students and parents. Other schools in the Vancouver district have been forced to lose similar programs. We need your help to prevent Jamieson from undergoing the same fate.

Our teacher is passionate about instilling the joy of music to students. He has supported the advanced strings groups by giving hundreds of hours of his own time, totaling an astounding 300 volunteers hours a year. The students respond by auditioning and rehearsing whenever and wherever possible, including before and after school, at recess and lunch. They are passionate and fully engaged to be a part of the program.

However, for the first time in 17 years, our teacher has reluctantly reduced his volunteer time to 50 hours a year. He has done everything humanly possible to maintain the program but his dedication alone is not sufficient to keep afloat a program running on empty.   

Why do we care?

  • Jamieson is home to Canada’s largest school string orchestra program.
  • Students join the program in Grade 4, many having never played a string instrument.
  • At Grade 7, they will have learned to play over 100 pieces of music and performed in more than a dozen concerts, equipped with advanced musicianship skills far beyond their age.

The program embodies education excellence at its best. For 20 years It has had a positive impact on the lives of students. Its reputation draws families to our school from near and afar. Jamieson graduates are welcomed at Lord Byng and Magee secondary’s acclaimed music schools. We should be celebrating its success instead of staving off its demise.

  • The short-term result: no auditions, reduced number of advanced orchestra spots, and much less rehearsal time.   
  • The long-term loss:
    • Putting at risk a program that exemplifies student success. Continued neglect from the VSB will undermine a program that would be irreplaceable once gone.
    • Secondary schools – already adversely impacted by budget cuts – will continue to see their own orchestras diminish as they struggle to recruit young musicians.
    • When educators and parents are concerned about the social and mental well-being of students and children are criticized for having too much screen time, the loss of a well-established music program is counter-productive to address these concerns.    

The Advanced Strings program is an extraordinary group which calls for an extraordinary solution. These strings orchestras will disappear without urgent intervention from the VSB. What do we need? Support our advanced orchestras. Advocate for music education excellence at Jamieson and all VSB schools. Restore funding for music programs.

Thank you,

尊敬的Fraser女士和Chan-Pedley女士,

我是Dr. Annie B. Jamieson小学的一名家长,我写信是为了表达我对近期普通话课程变化的担忧,这些变化对普通话双语计划的未来产生了较大的负面影响。

如您所知,Jamieson的普通话课程在25年前开创了小学的普通话教育先河。从那时起,它一直蓬勃发展,并在当地乃至国际上得到认可。它在4年级到7年级均会开设,并在Eric Hamber 中学仍继续开设。

去年,普通话课程在没有咨询或沟通的情况下发生了巨大的变化,导致了两个负面结果:一是普通话课程的学位减少,二是学生和教师现在的学习环境更具挑战性。

学生数量急剧减少的原因是增加了幼儿园的学位申请,以及我们学校在地震改造期间暂时搬迁至的South Hill教室不足。这导致普通话课程减少,由过去的五个班在2018-2019年减少到四个班。现在 Jamieson已搬回到原校址,但由于Cambie走廊采用更高密度的住宅项目进行重新开发,因此学区内入学情况和教室空间仍然备受关注。

更糟糕的是,该课程的申请要求在去年突然改变,取消了评估阶段,并且没有告知家长、学生或老师。评估对于学生的成功是不可或缺的,因为它确定了两件事:学生是否具有足够强的英语语言技能,可以放弃一章节语言艺术并获得额外的普通话课程?其次,学生的普通话素养是否太高,而无法从该计划中受益?

该计划的目标是在学习环境中提供丰富的语言艺术,旨在帮助学生在普通话和核心课程中取得成功。评估有助于创造最佳学习体验,为少数专业教师提供最佳教学环境,以及最公平地提供学区计划。

目前,不管学生的读写技能和教育需求如何,取消评估过程并完全依赖抽签确定入学。以前不具备资格的申请人英语能力较差或已经是说普通话的人现在均通过抽签系统录取。两者都只能在本就存在个体差异的学生之间创造更大的鸿沟,给学生和教师带来了诸多挑战。

我非常担心这些变化可能会对普通话课程造成无法弥补的伤害。我要求将课程恢复到原来的完整规模。请撤销这些招生程序的变化,并让家长和老师参与规划普通话课程。我们希望确保这项多年来丰富了Jamieson学校和更广泛的社区的课程取得长远的成功。

谢谢,

Dear Ms Fraser and Ms Chan-Pedley,

I am a parent at Dr. Annie B. Jamieson Elementary School and I am writing to express my concerns about recent changes that are negatively affecting the future of the Mandarin Bilingual Program.

As you are aware, Jamieson’s Mandarin program pioneered Mandarin language education in elementary schools 25 years ago. Since then it has thrived and been recognized locally and even internationally. It runs from Grades 4 to 7 and continues at Eric Hamber Secondary.

Last year, the Mandarin program underwent drastic changes without consultation or communication that resulted in two negative outcomes: fewer spaces available in the Mandarin program, and a learning environment now more challenging for students and teachers.

The dramatic reduction of students was due to an increase in applications for Kindergarten spaces, and a shortage of classroom space at South Hill where our school was temporarily relocated during seismic upgrade. This resulted in fewer Mandarin classes, five divisions in the past, reduced to four divisions in 2018-2019. Since then, Jamieson has returned to its original school site. But in-catchment enrolment and classroom space continue to be of great concern as the Cambie corridor is redeveloped with higher density residential projects.

To make matters worse, the program’s application requirements were abruptly changed last year, eliminating the assessment process, and done without warning to parents, students, or teachers. The assessment was integral for the success of students because it determined two things: does the student have strong enough English language skills to forgo a block of Language Arts and receive an additional block of Mandarin class? Secondly, is the student’s Mandarin literacy too advanced to benefit from the program?

The program’s objective is to offer enriched language arts in a learning environment designed to help students succeed in Mandarin and in their core curriculum. The assessment facilitated the creation of the best learning experience, an optimal teaching environment for the few specialized teachers, and the fairest delivery of a district program.

Currently the no-assessment process depends entirely on a lottery to determine admission, irrespective of a student’s literacy skills and educational needs. Applicants who previously would not have been eligible – due to their weak English language skills or are Mandarin speakers already – are now admitted under the lottery system. Both only serve to create a wider gulf among students at both ends of the spectrum, creating challenges for learners and teachers alike.

I am greatly concerned that these changes may cause irreparable harm to the Mandarin program. I ask that the program be brought back to its full size. Please reverse these admission changes and engage parents and teachers in planning of the Mandarin program. We want to ensure the long-term success of this program which has enriched the Jamieson school and wider community for so many years.

The dramatic reduction of students was due to an increase in applications for Kindergarten spaces, and a shortage of classroom space at South Hill where our school was temporarily relocated during seismic upgrade. This resulted in fewer Mandarin classes, five divisions in the past, reduced to four divisions in 2018-2019. Since then, Jamieson has returned to its original school site. But in-catchment enrolment and classroom space continue to be of great concern as the Cambie corridor is redeveloped with higher density residential projects.

To make matters worse, the program’s application requirements were abruptly changed last year, eliminating the assessment process, and done without warning to parents, students, or teachers. The assessment was integral for the success of students because it determined two things: does the student have strong enough English language skills to forgo a block of Language Arts and receive an additional block of Mandarin class? Secondly, is the student’s Mandarin literacy too advanced to benefit from the program?

The program’s objective is to offer enriched language arts in a learning environment designed to help students succeed in Mandarin and in their core curriculum. The assessment facilitated the creation of the best learning experience, an optimal teaching environment for the few specialized teachers, and the fairest delivery of a district program.

Currently the no-assessment process depends entirely on a lottery to determine admission, irrespective of a student’s literacy skills and educational needs. Applicants who previously would not have been eligible – due to their weak English language skills or are Mandarin speakers already – are now admitted under the lottery system. Both only serve to create a wider gulf among students at both ends of the spectrum, creating challenges for learners and teachers alike.

I am greatly concerned that these changes may cause irreparable harm to the Mandarin program. I ask that the program be brought back to its full size. Please reverse these admission changes and engage parents and teachers in planning of the Mandarin program. We want to ensure the long-term success of this program which has enriched the Jamieson school and wider community for so many years.

Thank you,

Absences

Q. My child is absent from school. Will a refund be issued?

A.  Refunds are not issued for missed lunches due to absences. Arrangements can be made for a parent, friend or sibling to pick up lunch orders during lunchtime by contacting lunch@jamiesonpac.com. Any unclaimed lunches must be returned to the Hot Lunch Concession table.

Q.  My child did not receive lunch. What should I do?

A .  A reminder email from Munchalunch is sent to parents the day before each hot lunch day to confirm orders. If a parent did not receive an email, the lunch order for the following day was not received. The Hot Lunch committee can address any ordering issues via email. Lunches for any unpaid accounts are automatically cancelled one week before the scheduled lunch date. Please contact lunch@jamiesonpac.com for any questions.

Q.  What should I do if there is a school field trip?

A.  Please contact the Hot Lunch Committee if your child has an upcoming field trip.  A minimum of one week’s notice is required to cancel lunch orders. Teachers are also asked to advise the Hot Lunch Committee of planned field trips.

Q.  What happens if a student did not bring a lunch/order lunch?

A.  The student will be brought to the office and asked to call their parent. If the parent cannot bring a lunch, the parent will be offered the option of purchasing menu items from the Hot Lunch program.  Students will not be given a lunch without parental consent.

Delivery

Q.  How are the lunches sorted at school?

A. The contents of each division’s bin are sorted and double-checked by the hot lunch volunteers.  Before the bins are released to the classrooms, all orders are verified by student lunch monitors.  Once the bins are brought to the classrooms, it is the responsibility of the lunch monitors, teacher or supervision aide to ensure that the correct orders are distributed.

Q.  What happens to food orders that are handed out incorrectly or mishandled?

A.  All lunch orders are double checked before distribution to the classrooms. Once the lunch bins are picked up by the lunch monitors, hot lunch volunteers are not responsible for lunches that are mishandled, dropped, or inaccurately distributed.

The Fine Print

Q.  Can menu items be exchanged?

A.  We regret we cannot exchange pre-ordered lunch items due to potential food allergies and food safety concerns.

Q. When should I place my order?

A. Lunches can be ordered any time during the term, up to 8 days prior to the delivery date of your first lunch.

Q. Can I pay for my orders at the end of term?

A. No, lunch orders should be paid at the time of ordering. Payment by credit card only (Visa or MasterCard).  Families with outstanding accounts will have their lunches automatically cancelled one week before the scheduled lunch date.

Q. Can I cancel my order?

A.  Seven (7) days cancellation notice is required and a credit will be issued.  Upon request, accounts with credit balances in excess of $25 will be issued a refund cheque at the end of the school year.

Q.  What about refunds?

A.  Refunds are not issued for missed lunches due to absences. Parents can contact the Hot Lunch Committee to make alternate arrangements for the pick-up of missed lunch orders during lunchtime.  Any unclaimed lunches must be returned to the Hot Lunch Concession Table.

Q.  What happens to outstanding accounts?

A.  Every effort is made to contact parents if a lunch order has not been paid, by email and reminder notices sent home with students.  If an impending lunch order remains unpaid and we do not receive a response, we regret that lunches for unpaid accounts are automatically cancelled one week before the scheduled lunch date.

Thank you,
