Reminder- Restrictions on Food Offered During Celebrations and Parties
The policy reads in part, "Foods and beverages sold or offered in classrooms (e.g., celebrations, rewards) or school-sponsored activities during the school day shall follow the Oregon Smart Snacks standards unless otherwise exempt by state law."
This means that if you would like to bring treats to your child's class to celebrate their birthday those treats must meet or exceed the Smart Snack Nutrition Guidelines. You may choose to celebrate your child's birthday at school without food. Many of our classrooms already offer opportunities to celebrate birthdays with non-food options. Check with your classroom teacher for their birthday party guidelines.
Here are some helpful links to help you with your Smart Snack Shopping.
The enforcement of this policy means that the office and the classroom teacher will not accept treats (like cupcakes) to celebrate birthdays. Please consult the links above to find those Smart Snack treats that are acceptable at school.
