At a meeting Monday the Ecole McIsaac School Parent Advisory Council decided to no longer offer a lunch program effective the end of the current school year. Their Chair Susan Thompson explains initially when the program was started it was very small, they had one employee with parent volunteer support and it has since gone beyond that. She says they now have around fifty children attending on a regular basis and two employees now, there’s an issue with space, an issue with safety and supervision so it’s gone beyond what their small volunteer Council can safely and effectively provide.
Thompson adds the School and the Division are currently looking for alternatives. Anyone with comments, questions or ideas can contact the School Division.
