Schedule & Lunch Issues
- All lunches will be delivered to BB&N by 11:30am each day. A BB&N employee will distribute lunches directly to the children during their lunch block according to the registration list for that day.
- IF your student is late for lunch and the lunch person is no longer present, the student's lunch will be placed in the Faculty Lunch Room Refrigerator (if cold) or on the counter (if hot). Late students should see any faculty member to retrieve their lunch in the Faculty Lunch Room for them. If no faculty member is available, the student should report to the front office for assistance. No student should be without a meal on any given day. If there are any errors or misunderstanding with regard to lunch, please remind your student to speak directly to the lunch person on site so that we can help your student.
- We will do our best to catch any obvious computer errors or holiday ordering errors and process a refund accordingly. If you notice an error on your order please contact Smart Lunches directly. If you need additional assistance you can contact us at AfterSchool@bbns.org.
- If it is before the 2 business day deadline we will try to cancel an order and refund your payment.
- Please ensure that your order is correct before making payment and finalizing your order.
- If your child is absent on any given day in which he/she ordered a lunch, that lunch will be disposed of by the end of school that day. No lunches will be preserved beyond the day of delivery.
- Snow Days: IF we have a snow day, BBN will notify Smart Lunches directly, so no need for parents to reach out to Smart Lunches on a snow day. The timing of the snow notification will determine any refunds that may be available to families. If the school notifies us before 10AM the day before the closure, 100% credit back to the families. If the school notifies us between 10AM the day before and 6AM the morning of the closure, 50% credit back to the families. If the school notifies us after 6AM the day of the closure, 25% credit back to the families
