Birthdays and Celebrations
More and more of our students are diagnosed with severe food allergies, and many of our parents want to limit their children’s intake of sweets. If you wish to bring a small treat to celebrate your child’s birthday, we are requesting that you bring a non-food treat for your child to share with his/her classmates (pencils, stickers, erasers, bookmarks, etc.). This will allow all students in the class to participate in the celebration while keeping all our students safe.
If your child is inviting classmates to his/her birthday party, please do not have your child distribute invitations at school.
Parents are requested to work with classroom teachers and room parents regarding classroom policies and possible food allergies when bringing food items in for classroom parties.
