McDermid Nutrition/Lunch Program

Nutritionist: Mrs. Allysa Racette


Breakfast Program

The breakfast program is back for another school year. Students are asked to use the junior entrance at the back of the school and NOT to arrive before 8:25 as the doors are locked and supervision does not start until 8:40 am. Breakfast is offered to all students from 8:25 – 8:53 am free of charge.



Lunch Program

Lunch supervision is provided to students at no charge. All students must complete a registration form and indicate whether they will attend on a regular basis or casual. Parents of students staying on a casual basis must call the school or send a note each time their child stays for lunch. The lunch program is a privilege and inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated. The consequences for not following the rules are outlined in the Student/Parent Agreement.
