Important Changes to HotLunches – Paypal No Longer Accepted!

Dear Parents and Guardians,
Due to recent changes implemented by the CRA, we (and other schools) are no longer able to use Paypal as a means of collecting payments through our HotLunches website. The problem arose because we (and each individual school) do not have a “business number” registered with CRA yet we required a business-type account with Paypal to handle the volume of our sales.
At the suggestion of the HotLunches parent company, we are switching to Bambora as a method of collecting online lunch payments. Bambora is a well-established platform for collecting online payments – they will basically serve as a secure gateway for you to submit payment using your own credit card. The payment screen that will appear at the end of placing your order should look like the one attached below. You will not need a Bambora account like you may have had with Paypal – it will be more like regular online shopping that you may be used to with other shopping websites. You will fill in your credit card number, the 3-digit CVV from the back of the card, and the expiration date to complete the order. As with Paypal, there is a small service fee charged back to the school so we continue to add a 5% surcharge on all orders to help cover the costs of Bambora and the HotLunches website.
The Late May 2019 order is now online. It is a 3 week schedule running from May 13-31. We strongly encourage you to place your order early so that we can help you troubleshoot any payment issues before it’s too late.
Thanks for your cooperation,
Randy
Bambora Interface

Grade 8 Information

Grad Photo Retakes – Lifetouch has offered to come back for a retake of the grad photos since there were issues with some portraits. They will be here on Thursday, May 9. In some cases, we would have hoped that the photographer would have taken more care to catch a great shot. But to be honest, in other cases some students did not take the process very seriously and that may be why some pictures are not grad-photo worthy. Since we are getting the opportunity for retakes, we are asking the students to also take the opportunity seriously. I’m sure you will join us in reminding your son or daughter of that when the day approaches. If you prefer the original picture over the retake, you can still choose to order the original. The most recent picture (regardless of quality) is the one that is used for the composite that you have the opportunity to post. We don’t post the composite in the school – just the more casual “anchor photo”. The “anchor photo” may or may not be taken on May 9th – it will depend on the weather.

May 8 (6-7pm at KRHS) – Information session for parents and Grade 8 students

Closing Ceremonies – this year’s Closing is scheduled for Tuesday, June 25th with a dance to follow at Somerset Consolidated.

The Year-End-Trip to Moncton will take place on Friday, June 21st with a raindate of Monday, June 24th. As started last year, it is no longer an overnight trip.

We are Going to the Movies!

ACC is Going to the Movies!
Posted on March 31, 2019 by rfgallant
We’re going to the movies! On Friday, April 5th, we will be taking all the students to see the new Dumbo movie at Cineplex Studios in Summerside. Our buses will depart at approximately 11am and return around 2:30pm. Because of that early departure, we will not be having pizza that day. Please pack a lunch they can eat early and if they are ordering popcorn, you may want to make it a light lunch. Thanks to previous fundraising efforts, the movie and transportation will be paid by us. If your child would like a snack during the show, they will need to purchase it in advance but it is not necessary – they can go without a snack if you wish. Prices range from $6 to $9.75. No outside snacks can be brought into the theatre. The easiest way to order a snack is through the HotLunches website. In addition to the current lunch schedule, you will see a schedule called “Movie Theatre Snacks for Friday, April 5th”. There are 3 size options available and you must also select a drink from the options provided. We will not be allowing children to take any leftovers back with them as we do not want the mess on the bus so please just order the size they can consume there. If you do not use HotLunches (this would be a good time to start) you can order through a memo that will be sent home on Monday. Movie snack orders must be placed no later than Wednesday at noon. Late orders will have to be turned down as we need to have certain things arranged in advance. At this time we are not putting a request out for chaperones; we may have enough staff to cover the activity (the theatre does not provide any free chaperone admission so we have to be respectful of the total cost). If that changes, we will contact you. You can watch a trailer of the show here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpeXbM5Xw9Qdumbo
