Outside Food and Celebrations Information
Competitive Foods are not permitted at any time during the school day. Competitive foods are any food or beverage made available to the student that is not purchased from the school cafeteria.
Although a parent or grandparent is not prohibited from providing food for a school-designated celebration day or for children in the child’s or grandchild’s classroom for his or her birthday, please be aware that children in the school may have severe allergies to certain food products. Therefore, it is imperative to discuss this with the child’s teacher prior to bringing any food in this circumstance. Occasionally, the school or a class may host certain functions or celebrations tied to the curriculum that will involve food. The school or teacher will notify students and parents of any known food allergies when soliciting potential volunteers for bringing food products.
School Parties, Celebrations, and Deliveries
There are three designated days in the following months-October, December, and June, in which campuses may select to have school or class parties. The guidelines for providing refreshments on these three designated dates include:
All snacks/refreshments shall be store bought.
All snacks/refreshments shall be individually wrapped or packaged.
Snacks/refreshments that do not meet nutrition guidelines may only be provided on the three designated school celebration days.
In order to honor instructional time and to minimize classroom interruptions, we request that student deliveries of items such as balloons, gifts, flowers, cookie bouquets, etc. not be made to campuses. Note: Only one day during October, December and June may be used for an approved waiver day from the Texas Nutrition Policy. All classroom or school parties must be held on the same day for all grade levels.
