Food for school or class events, birthday celebrations or rewards will not be allowed. Issues related to food allergy management, loss of instructional time, disparity, and the district’s’ commitment to promoting a lifestyle have contributed to the development of this procedure consistent with BOE policies 7:285 and 6:05.
- Edible birthday treats will no longer be distributed to classmates. However, if you would like to celebrate your child’s birthday, items such as bubbles, stickers, removable tattoos, small containers of play dough, chalk are acceptable.
The classrooms will continue to provide the students with a snack each day or any food related items as it is a part of the curriculum or if it is included in their Individual Education Plan (IEP) as appropriate.
