Please note that we have implemented a new online ordering system this year. Please go to https://munchalunch.com/schools/holycrosselementary/ for the ordering process. All lunches need to be filled out by Wednesday, September 13, 2017. No late additions will be accepted. You will still need to submit a cheque or cash to the school office or class teacher for your payment. Please do NOT put cheques in envelopes.

IMPORTANT:Each term there is at least one complimentary hot lunch. Even if you don't want any other lunches, please register online and only order the complimentary lunch so we have accurate numbers for the complimentary lunches.

For parents who tested the system in June, good news, your account info was NOT cleared so you don't need to set up a new login. For everyone else, please follow the instructions below.

go to https://munchalunch.com/schools/holycrosselementary/ to either register an account for your family, or to login to your existing account. You will set up all of your children within the one account, and each will be linked by their grade.

choose your child's name click through the steps to order the items your child would like for each date.

Each meal includes a snack and a drink. If your child does not want to have either the snack or the drink you can choose the "no drink" or "no snack" item to complete the combo. The cost however, will remain the same.

For hot dogs and chicken burgers there is an option to purchase an additional meal item for $2. This option is only available after you choose the main combo item.

When you select the menu items from the left, you need to then click the ADD arrow in the middle to finish the process for that date. You will see the items ordered on the right side of the screen.

Click next to go to the next date, or use the drop down menu to skip to a certain date.

Click "show calendar" at the bottom for a calendar view of all lunches.

After you have ordered what you want for each hot lunch date, there will be a review page with an option to go back and edit or continue.

The next screen allows you another chance to delete any unwanted dates (for example, for the Grade 7 field trip Nov. 7 - 10).

There is then one more screen, with your child's name at the top, to review exactly what was ordered, the total cost, and a button to go back and edit or submit your order. When you press submit you will be emailed a copy of your order.

You can leave some dates blank if you are unsure and go back to add them before the due date, but once ordered, you will need to contact a hot lunch coordinator to change or delete a selection. Due to bulk ordering, changes may not be possible after the deadline of September 13, 2017.

The day before each week's hot lunch you will be sent an email reminder of what you ordered for each child.


DUE DATE: Wednesday, September 13, 2017
