Revised snack and classroom celegrations
Snacks and class parties
Please refer to the Approved School Wide/Classroom Celebration food list below.
When providing food for class celebrations please provide an ingredient list of the food product. Tape ingredient list to the outside of the food container. If food is home made also write down ingredients used. If your child eats peanuts and nuts, please ask them to eat it in the lunch room and not the classroom. Thank you for your help in making the classroom safe for all students.
If you are a parent of a child with a known food allergy, please provide the teacher with alternative snacks from home so they can participate in future classroom celebrations. I have a refrigerator in the health office, and would be happy to hold any snack for your child.
PLEASE DROP OFF ALL FOOD FOR CLASSROOM CELEBRATIONS TO THE MAIN OFFICE BY 10 AM.
With class parties please model healthy food choices by providing a variety of nutritional foods, such as fresh fruit, veggies and dip, whole grain crackers with cheese cubes or string cheese, pretzels, goldfish etc.
