For the children enrolled in our lunch program, our lunch provider My Kids Lunch, will leave packaged meals in one designated area. They will not be authorized to walk through the buildings. Lunch will be individually packaged, and it will be served in the classroom, along with any lunches brought from home. Lunch brought from home will have to be labelled with the name of the student.
Only cold lunch boxes will be allowed: no school microwave or refrigerator to use, please pack in isothermal boxes and/or with reusable ice packs.
At L'École de Denver, we know developing brains and bodies need well-balanced, healthy meals to grow. However, our hot lunch program is designed not only to support the basic nutritional needs of our students but like our bilingual learning program, it introduces healthy eating habits that offer lifetime benefits. With our service partner, daily menus, and lunchroom environment we help to foster a general respect for food, an openness to trying new tastes, and an understanding of good nutrition that will serve our students well beyond our walls.
If you don’t wish to participate in our hot lunch program, your child must bring their own lunch. We encourage you to pack meals that will support L'École’s healthy eating message—and that your child likes, as uneaten food will be returned in their lunch box or bag. Please remember that sodas and drinks containing sugars or caffeinated beverages are strictly prohibited on L'École de Denver's campus, as are candies and gum. Packed lunches must also abide by our Nut-Free School policy, so they cannot include any food made with any nut products.
Glass bottles or containers should not be used. Plastic bags or containers should be used to separate foods and Thermos bottles are allowed for soups and drinks. During COVID-19 pandemic, microwaves are NOT available for students to heat up meals.
