Please note that if you wish your child to have a hot dinner, you must order before midnight on the day before. If you do not do this, your child will NOT be able to have a hot dinner and you will need to provide them with a packed lunch. Please also note that if your child is off sick or changes their mind opting to have a packed lunch instead, you will need to let the Office know in order to receive the credit for that meal. If you do not let the Office know you will not receive a credit.
