Lunchtime @ TEC

Students in grades 3-8 are expected to eat their lunch in the cafeteria and to follow the PEBS Matrix for that area. Students in grades P-2 will be eating in their classrooms. Students can bring their own lunches or purchase food from the cafeteria.

Microwave Service

Again this year, we are pleased to offer microwaving during lunch.

Due to a large number of students using this service, and in an attempt to reheat items in a timely manner, we are unable to accept the following:

  • items needing to be heated for longer than 1 minute
  • items requiring that water be added (i.e. Kraft Dinner bowls)
  • frozen dinners
  • soups will only be warmed, not heated

We would also recommend that frozen pizzas be cooked at home and reheated in school because they do not cook properly in microwaves. The school is unable to supply utensils. Please send these along with your child if needed.


Our school cafeteria is operated by Chartwells. A copy of the cafeteria menu for the current school year is located below, as well as information regarding their online ordering services. Indeed, there are two ways to order online. Parents/guardians can create an account at and can reload prepaid cards at
