Lunch and Birthday Snack Guidelines 2016-17


Lunch Snacks

The following outlines the availability of snack purchases during lunch.  

Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade:

  • Snacks will not be available for purchase.

3rd grade-5th grade:

  • Thursday has been designated as snack day.  

  • Students may purchase one snack on designated snack days.  

Birthday Snacks

We want to honor student birthdays while still respecting instructional time and the allergy restrictions of other students.   

With that in mind, the following are our birthday snack/treat guidelines:

  • Parents may send in store-bought, individual treats such as cookies, donuts, or cupcakes.  

  • Parents may choose to bring in non-edible treats such as pencils, markers, and erasers instead of store-bought, edible treats.

  • Teachers will hand out the treats at the end of the school day as the students are leaving the classroom.
