The following in the district-wide policy in celebrating your child's birthday in class.Birthday parties for students and teachers, with the exception of Beginners, are prohibited, as is the distribution of party invitations or any other materials by families. Beginner parents who wish to send in a small birthday treat (cupcakes, soft pretzels, etc.) are asked to make arrangements with the classroom teacher at least 72 hours before the requested date. The treat allowed for the classroom may depend on student allergies. Please note: All food items need to be approved by the classroom teacher and screened for food allergies by the teacher before any items can be brought into the classroom. Beginner birthday treats should be dropped off in the main office with your child’s name. Birthday treats will be delivered to your child’s classroom.Thank you for your understanding and adherence to this policy.
