Lunch / Recess
Academy and Preschool students eat lunch together following mealtime prayers at 11:30am – 12:30pm. Mealtime is used for quiet conversation and fellowship, as well as an opportunity to learn and practice good table manners.
The school facilities do not include a licensed commercial kitchen in daily operation. We do have a license to serve food on the premise for special events & restaurant deliveries. Daily students are required to bring a snack and lunch with them to school. We are not allowed to heat food. Accordingly we do not serve breakfast so please have your child eat before coming to school. Any food delivered to school after 8:10am cannot be given to the student until lunch or during a scheduled snack time.
Please send a lunch and a snack with your child daily. DO NOT drop off a lunch unless it is an emergency. If your child requires a hot lunch please purchase a thermos.
Students may wish to celebrate their birthday, baptismal anniversary, or patron saint’s day with their classmates. Parents/guardians may bring in a hot lunch for all students including; main dish, drink, vegetables and/or fruit. Also/or cookies, cakes, cupcakes, or frozen desserts on that day – enough for each student – along with “party” plates, napkins, etc. Special treats will be eaten in the afternoon, before dismissal or during lunch break. Please inform the student’s homeroom teacher.
