Lunch & Nutrition

Steinhauer School students who choose to stay within the facility for the lunch hour are required to pay a fee for lunch supervision.

Lunch Program Fees

Lunch Program fees are collected to cover the cost of lunchroom supervisors hired to assist with supervision over the lunch hour. These supervisors are agents of the Edmonton Public School Board and have the same authority as a supervising teacher. Students are provided with time to eat their lunch and clean up their eating area. All students will then go outside and are expected to remain on the school grounds.

Please note:

Edmonton Public Schools Board Policy IH.BP states:

Schools shall provide lunch-time supervision at school for elementary students whose parents request the service and pay the required fees.

In order to calculate the cost of lunch fees accurately, lunch fees will be set by the end of September and the September & October fees will be due October 16, 2020. There will be an opportunity for students to drop in on an occasional basis. The drop-in fee is $2 per lunch hour.

Lunch Program Expectations

  • All students are expected to behave appropriately.
  • Students are expected to eat lunch quietly at their own desks.
  • Students are not to share food (due to possible allergies).
  • Students need to bring their own utensils for eating.
  • After lunch, students should clean up their own area and put any trash in the garbage.
  • Students should listen to the lunch supervisor and follow all instructions.
  • Students need to move quickly between eating and going outside or vice versa.
  • Students will use the washroom before starting to eat, or on being dismissed to go outside.
  • Students who are registered in the lunch program are to remain on campus unless they have been signed out by a parent or guardian at the office.

Any student who exhibits inappropriate behaviour will be dealt with immediately by the lunchroom supervisor, teacher or administrator.  If the behaviour persists, a student may have their lunch program privileges suspended and alternate arrangements for lunch would need to be made by the parent.

School Milk Program

Steinhauer School offers a milk program at lunch time. Chocolate & 2% white milk are available at $1.00/carton. Regular lunchroom users wanting to participate in the milk program are required to buy a MILK VOUCHER for $20.00 (entitles child to 20 units of milk) from the school office. 


  • We are a NUT FREE school.  Due to a number of students who have severe nut allergies, we ask that you do not send any products with nuts in your child’s lunch.
  • No glass containers are to be brought to school due to safety concerns. 
  • Students will need to bring a cold lunch or use thermoses for hot items. Due to Occupational Health and Safety regulations, there will be no microwaves available in the lunch program.
