Birthday Baskets Are Here!
At this time, Birthday Baskets from the ESASD Food Services department are the only birthday celebration treats that are permitted. Attached is the link for the order form. Simply complete the form and send it to your child's teacher (scan to email or physically send it to school).
Until further notice, all classroom birthday celebrations are on hold. Please do not send any items prepackaged (or otherwise) from home to share with others.
The cafeteria is in the process of bringing back their Birthday Basket package that parents/guardians will be able to purchase to celebrate their child's special day. More information and order forms will be released from Food Services soon.
In keeping with health and safety, the ESASD Birthday Basket option will be the only type of birthday celebration permitted at this time.
