We have a fully equipped library at McCaig School containing English and French books - both fiction and non-fiction.
To ensure the smooth running of our library, we ask the following:
All students are welcome to eat their lunch at the school in the cafeteria. Supervision is provided by Lunchroom Supervisors. These supervisors have all the authority of any staff member. Students eat in two shifts. Normally, when one group of students is eating their lunch, the other group is engaged in extra curricular activities or is outside. Pupils who do not follow the few reasonable rules established for the lunchroom may be refused permission to eat at school. A cafeteria offering a hot lunch program, drinks and lunch box extras is located on the lower level. Menus and prices will be sent home as soon as they are available.
|The menu is based on a rotation schedule as indicated on the monthly calendar.|
