For Parents

Breakfast Program

West Dover School offers a Breakfast Program for all students in the morning prior to school. The program is made possible by The Boys and Girls Club of Calgary, and Breakfast Clubs of Canada. Ms. Shirley Burkart is the primary staff member who prepares a nutritous breakfast for those students who require something to eat prior to the school day begining. Students attending the program are asked to enter the school through the north east entry door.

Lunchroom Program

At West Dover School we offer a noon supervision for all students. There is a fee associated with this service. For the most up to date information please refer to the corporate cbe site

Students that bring their own lunch are encouraged to make good nutritional choices eg. fruits and vegetables, hearty sandwiches etc. Please do not send pop, chips or sugar-filled foods. We have kettles available but do not have microwaves. If students enjoy hot lunches they will need to bring their own thermos.

Students are also able to attend the Lunchroom Program on a drop-in basis at a cost of $5.00 per day. Please have your child bring the fee to the school office first thing in the morning.

Lunchroom students will spend part of their lunch hour outside getting fresh air and exercise each day. Please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather.


West Dover welcomes parent volunteers.  Your presence in our school supports student learning and provides wonderful role models for our students.   If you are interested in volunteering please come to the office to complete a Calgary Police Service security clearance and a volunteer registration form.  Once the forms have been completed and the security clearance has gone through the proper channels, you will be able to volunteer both in our school and on fieldtrips.
