Lunchbox Orders Cancelled Today……

With the pending inclement weather, we wanted to ensure that you are fully aware of the procedures to follow should your lunch order delivery be affected.

If a scheduled lunch delivery needs to be cancelled, due to bus cancellation or school closure, then the following three steps must be actioned:

1. You must notify the food vendor by 8am via email and/or phone. If you call your vendor and receive voicemail, please leave a message and follow up with an email to them.

2. After notifying the vendor, please email us at to let us know that you notified the vendor, and whether it was via email, a live phone call, or a voicemail.

3. Optionally, you may wish to notify your parents/guardians that the school has cancelled ordered lunches for that day and that they should expect to see credits in their Lunchbox accounts within 2 business days.

The vendor information can be found in the welcome email you received when your program launched under the Vendor Schedule and Contact Information section of the provided link.

If you cannot find your Lunchbox welcome email, then please contact us at

If your school also has a milk program, then unfortunately milk cannot be credited as it is already at the school. You may distribute it to the students any other day as you see fit.

St. Anne Reminder…

Hello Families,

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow is a P.A. Day and there is no school.

This P.A. Day, staff will be working and meeting about term 1 report cards. The School Board would like to share that, as you may be aware, we are experiencing staffing shortages across Waterloo Region and the entire province.

Due to the current pressures on staffing, your child’s class may be without a permanently assigned teacher, or a permanently assigned Planning Time teacher.  We are ensuring that the class is covered on a daily basis, and instruction and assessment are occurring.  That said, we are not certain at this time that the evaluation and reporting that we typically have come to expect will be as robust in many of our classes. Where this is the case, you will see on the report card the mark of an “I” for Insufficient Evidence, to indicate that insufficient evidence is available to determine a letter grade or percentage mark at this time.

The School Board is actively strategizing and working to address the concern, but in fairness to all, we wished to proactively communicate this concern to you. There will likely be some a follow-up reminder when reports go home.

We assure you that your child’s education is extremely important to us, and we appreciate your faith in us.

Please reach out to your child’s teacher if you have any questions.

Thank you,

St. Anne School Staff
