Seaside Elementary

Cafeteria Info

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to Seaside.  We are happy to offer a full hot lunch program once again.  This letter will explain how our menu works.  The first menu will commence Sept 16th, 2019 – Sept 27th, 2019.

On the form please circle the items you wish to order for each day, or any day for both weeks.  Please total the menu items ordered and record the total in the space provided at the bottom of the form for the entire two weeks.  When sending in your child’s menu (please submit a menu for each child), please note that menus go home every second Tuesday and are due back no later than the following Tuesday. (Exception first week due on Wed) Example:  Thurs. Sept 5th due back Wed. Sept 11th, (every menu will be due on Tuesdays, except first menu). The menu items ordered will be delivered for the two weeks that follow, Mon Sept 16th – Fri Sept 27th, with a new menu form going home Tuesday, Sept 17th.  NO LATE MENUS WILL BE ACCEPTED.  (The only exception will be if the child is out sick the day the menu is due back.)

If sending in a post-dated cheque, please enclose the cheque with the order on Tuesday, dated no later than Friday of the week the menu is due, if cheques are post-dated further than that date, the cheque and order will be returned home.  Example:  cheque should be dated for Sept 13th and if dated for Sept 16th   or later the cheque will be returned home.  NSF - Any person having one NSF cheque, will be required to pay cash only, cheques will not be accepted any more for that person.

If paying by cash or cheque, the money must be enclosed with the menu.  Any menus received without cash and/or cheque will not be processed. We now accept credit cards and debit. Please ensure that your child’s name and teacher’s name are on the menu.  If we receive a menu without the child’s name, we cannot track that child down until the day the child may not have a lunch.  Children tend to go without their lunch, instead of coming to the cafeteria to see if they actually do get a lunch.  (We keep the copy of the lunch menus sent from home in the cafeteria, so we can tell the child if they do/don’t get a lunch on that day.)

Credits will only be given for students who are out sick, if the parent/guardian calls and cancels lunch before 8:30am, (Please call this number 465-8663 directly). The parent is responsible for noting the credit due on the NEXT menu, with the date the child was sick, marked beside it. Due to the fact pizzas and garlic fingers are ordered ahead of time, we cannot issue credits for these items.  .

We have such a large quantity of food to prepare every day that it is impossible to handle any special request in the preparation of the food.  NO SPECIAL ORDERS

If you have any ideas for food choices for the menus – please call, and talk it over with me.  I am always looking for new ideas.

Please send the menu form in a sealed bag or envelope provided from home, with your child’s name and teacher’s name clearly marked on it.  Only the menu money and menu should be in the bag.  Example:  no trip money or class project money should be in the bag, as the teachers don’t check to see if there is any other money in the bag, and if we receive any other money it may be too late for the teacher to process.

Children should receive a menu form from their teachers.  If your child does not receive a menu, please encourage your child to pick one up at the cafeteria, as we always have extras, or you can print one off of the school website, or copy on paper.  It is the student’s responsibility to hand their menu to the teacher, to be delivered to the cafeteria.

A good idea to keep track of lunches ordered, mark on a calendar.

All menu items will be prepared at Seaside with the exception of Pizza and Garlic Fingers, which we buy from Kenny’s Pizza.

Should your child show up at school with no lunch, a phone call will be placed to the parents prior to  giving them a bowl of soup for a cost of $2.00 to be paid the NEXT DAY.


*********If there is a storm day for bus students, the cafeteria will be open******  


I am looking forward to having a great year; please direct any questions or concerns you may have to
