Birthdays will now be recognized as a “Healthy Snack” in grades K – 4 in the following manner:
If you wish to celebrate your child’s birthday at school, you have two options.
1) It is recommended that parents send in a healthy snack (fruit, pretzels, popcorn) for the entire class to be shared during lunch.
2) Sending in a non-food item for the entire class. Some examples of non-food items include: bookmarks, erasers, pencils, pens, markers, stickers and bouncy balls.
Birthdays are special days for our students. Recognition of birthdays at school, while important, should not disrupt the learning process or endanger the health or well-being of any student. We have an increasingly growing number of students who have food allergies. These students, along with other students whose health conditions require dietary restrictions, need close monitoring. Thank you for your assistance in helping make our school a happy, safe, and healthy environment for all students and staff.
