Hot Lunch: Fall 2017, Coming in September
The Munch-a-Lunch Online Ordering Program will be ready for hot lunch orders in September.
The Fall list of hot lunches, including cut off dates for ordering will be available on the PAC website: https://jrespac.com/hotlunch/
All information is private and confidential. Payment can be made by credit card online through the program and these payments go directly to the PAC. There is a small fee we pay on our end per transaction and would prefer parents to pay for multiple children and multiple lunch orders all in one transaction. However, individual lunch dates can be ordered and paid for up to 10 days before the lunch occurs, so please do not feel like you can no longer participate if you have missed the first cut-off date. Please note if you are paying by cheque you can drop it off to the school office. If your payment is not received before the closing date (10 days before the lunch occurs) your orders will not be processed. Please note if your child is ill or away on a lunch date, you are welcome to come and pick up their lunch but we cannot keep the food for them for the next day. Consistent with previous years, there are NO REFUNDS. We appreciate your support for our hot lunch program as the funds go towards general fundraising within the school and special events.
Safer Schools Travel Program
The Safer School Travel Program Committee has issued a Draft Report to the City of Kamloops and Administration of Juniper Ridge Elementary School. A meeting was held in December 2016 to present our report and meet the City of Kamloops’ deadline. Our report included summarizing approximately 170 household surveys and providing conclusions and recommendations on how students get to school. More information on the program is available here. We are pleased to announce that some of our recommendations will be incorporated into engineering plans being undertaken by the city in the summer of 2017. More discussion is needed with various stakeholders and neighbours other aspects of this report can be implemented and the report be finalized.
