How to assign Theme Days to a Site or specific Classes

Caterers can assign theme days to either a site or specific classes at the site. Classes that have been assigned the theme day menu will see that specific menu and all remaining classes will see the normal menu.
In this example, the school wants to apply a theme day on Monday 1st August for a school trip for the Butterfly and Caspian classes so that the students in those classes can select a meal from the new menu while displaying the standard menu for the rest of the school for that day.

  IMPORTANT    Theme day menus applied on a Site Template will not override any Student specific menu templates, refer to Assigning Theme Days to specific Student Template.
