Classroom Parties/Food Policy
Parties/Food Policy


There are three classroom parties each year, Fall Celebration, Winter Celebration and Valentine’s Day. These parties are held at a time designated by the classroom teacher. In an effort to create a safe learning environment for all students, and in response to the increasing presence of food-based allergies, parent/guardians are permitted to only send in pre-packaged, individually labeled snacks or treats for these three celebrations. As part of the district-wide initiative to discourage the use of food as a reward, both teachers and parent/guardians are encouraged to recognize and celebrate students by methods that do not involve food. Per board policy (Student Wellness Program/Food Allergies), we will no longer allow birthday treats in the form of food or candy, to be brought in and eaten during the school day.

For the three celebrations that do involve food, staff will work with the school nurse/administration and parents to ensure that healthy options are available at these celebrations. The options have to be pre-packaged and individually labeled or if provided by the school/teacher, the treat has to be pre-approved by the school nurse and administration.

As a district, we are no longer allowing fast food, pizza etc., to be brought in for lunch. This too is in response to the increasing presence of food-based allergies.
We appreciate your attention to this policy and for understanding that this is for the well-being of all students.
