Changes were made to the Wellness regulation during the last Policy Committee meeting before spring break. The following information provides some key points and is a change in practice.
The Policy Committee made changes to Regulation 5402 Wellness for the Elementary schools. The attached revised Regulation will be posted on the District website. Effective immediately.
– NO food is allowed to be brought to Elementary schools in recognition of birthdays, holidays, or celebrations
– Students may still bring in an individual breakfast, lunch and snack that should NOT be shared
– Staff members should NOT give out food to students (including lollipops, treats, etc)
No homemade food being shared during the school day is still in effect for all schools K-12 (this section of the Regulation was reorganized to emphasize this restriction).
We can discuss any questions that you have. For PSSAs, students can bring in their own snacks, gum, etc.
