Little and Lower School Outside Food Policy

  • In order to confidently and consistently provide a safe and equitable environment for all children, we ask that parents not send in food as a birthday celebration or as snacks for the class. Birthdays can still be celebrated in ways that do not include food, and classroom teachers will share possibilities with parents and students.
  • Up to 4 times a year, the class might have an occasion with food, such as a Celebration of Learning or a holiday celebration. The room parent and classroom teacher will work with parents so that ingredient lists will be made available to families in advance and food that accommodates dietary restrictions will be served.
  • Classroom cooking activities will adhere to the peanut/tree nut policy and should not include ingredients from the dietary restriction list of the class.
