Lunch Program

The lunch program is a service provided through the Hampstead School Parent Association. A $5 registration fee is required and forms must be completed before children attend. Children require a nutritious lunch in spill-proof lunch boxes marked with name and room number. The lunch program operates from 11:40 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. daily and costs as follows.

  • Full-time- $20 per month
  • Part-time- $1 per day
  • Emergency - drop in fee - $2 per day

Registrants must be prepaid at the first of every month. Hampstead School lunch program will not assume responsibility for registrants not paid in advance. Those not paid up will be required to leave the lunch program.

Preferred payment is by cheque on the first of each month. Reminder notes are sent home the first week of each month indicating outstanding fees for that month. Post dated cheques are accepted. Cheques should be made payable to Hampstead School Lunch Program. Payment can be dropped off at the office or sent with your child (please clearly mark all correspondence with child's name).

Children are supervised in the lunch room from 11:40 -12:15 and must remain in their seats during this time. From 12:15 - 12:40 children are supervised on the playground. Teachers assume supervision at 12:30. Children staying for lunch must remain on school grounds at all times.

Any student needing indoor supervision due to illness requires a note from a parent/ guardian.
