Policy Review: SNACK POLICY

Please refer to our Parent/Guardian/Student Handbook (link above). On page 32, you will find our snack policy, which is also presented below for you. As students reach the higher grades, they pack their own items, this is where we need your partnership. We have directed staff to confiscate any/all candy items. Great reminder to never take anything from others as students may be allergic to certain ingredients!
