PIZZA DAY is BACK

Order Pizza for Session #1: November 23rd & 30th – December 7th & 14th

  • We will be offering cheese pizza at a cost of $3.50/slice
  • Pizza orders are available on SCHOOL CASH ONLINE until NOVEMBER 2nd
  • Please note that LATE ORDERS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED
  • Pizza must be ordered for the entire session, no ordering <day by day> or <the day of>
  • Unfortunately, no refunds for missed days

You will notice a slight increase in cost this year due to the individual boxing of each slice which is created added work for the trained food handlers at GINO’s PIZZA. The slices are being taken from EXTRA LARGE PIZZAs, which means that the slices are LARGER in size than in the past.

Halloween Candy/Treat Considerations

As the students will be receiving lots of treats when they go out to “Trick or Treat” on the evening of Sunday, October 31st, we would like to ask that parents continue following our COVID-19 protocols, and our HCDSB peanut free/tree nut free protocols and NOT SEND in Candy/Edible TREATS INTO SCHOOL for classmates/friends. We are looking to ensure that we follow the protocols outlined by Public Health and HCDSB.

‘Products that contain or ‘may contain’ peanuts and tree nuts are not to be brought onto school site.’

HCDSB Anaphylaxis Protocol

Also, please ensure that any candy/treats included in your child’s lunch after Halloween adhere to the above Anaphylaxis Protocol. We appreciate your support.

Parents and guardians must continue to perform daily screening of their child(ren) for COVID-19 symptoms BEFORE arriving at school using the https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/ Please continue to keep your children home, when they are feeling sick. Thank you
