HOT LUNCH CANCELLED TOMORROW, THURS FEB 14

Hot Lunch tomorrow,Thursday Feb. 14 (which was to be Pasta Day) is cancelled and has been rescheduled for next Tuesday, February 19.  All students, including those who had ordered Pasta, are asked to bring their own lunches to school for tomorrow.  Schools will be open tomorrow, Thurs. Feb. 14, and it is likely that transportation will be in place.  Parents are asked to check ottawaschoolbus.ca anytime after 6am tomorrow to find out about possible bus cancellations or delays.  As mentioned however, tomorrow's hot lunch (which was to be Pasta Day) has been cancelled and is rescheduled for Tuesday, February 19th.
Why is Hot Lunch cancelled?
Unfortunately, earlier today it was unclear whether schools would be open and/or whether transportation would be cancelled due to some streets still being impassable.  While we now know that schools will be open and we will know after 6am tomorrow if buses are running as usual, we had to make the decision about Hot Lunch early on Wednesday, due to the lead time needed by our pasta supplier.
With 300 pasta meals ordered for tomorrow, our concern was the possible waste of food as well as the financial cost to School Council if we went forward with Hot Lunch and then found out that schools were closed and/or buses cancelled.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding.
