School food policy


 

We have students who have life threatening nut allergies, so please read this thoroughly to familiarize yourself with how to pack school lunches and snacks. This policy pertains ANY food items brought onto school grounds.

**If you are bringing food to an event to share PLEASE LIST ALL INGREDIENTS for those with alergies or food sensitivities.

The new food policies will also be in the new parent handbook you will receive during Parent Orientation Night, and we will be going over it there.
