Acceptable Foods for School Events

In an effort to provide students with the safest and healthiest learning environment, we have complied an acceptable list of safe snacks that will be offered to the students at classroom parties and celebrations, including Halloween, Valentine’s Day, etc. and/or class curricular celebrations. Typically, these offerings are arranged for through our class and grade parents who help to coordinate these school events. No other food items will be offered at these events, and please be reminded that food items will not be accepted for individual student birthdays.
