Community School- Spring Enrichment

Birthday Celebration Policy Reminder

Please remember that in order to follow Federal and State nutrition standards, we do not allow any food treats to be brought in for birthday celebrations. We believe it is important to promote sound nutritional habits. With 1 in 13 children having at least one food allergy, it is difficult to safely navigate birthday treats in the classroom. Sending in a food treat to the classroom can exclude those children who have food allergies, diabetes, or other dietary restrictions. It can also exclude children who come from families facing financial hardships and are unable to afford to send in items for a special celebration. Each teacher does something special in their classroom to recognize and celebrate birthdays. Please talk to your student’s classroom teacher about their birthday policy. Thank you for your cooperation and support in keeping all of our students healthy.
