Healthy Kids Act/ Nutrition

Allergy Awareness: Several of our students have life threatening allergies. Please remember that our number one priority is the safety of our students. Treats that are not approved by the school nurse will be sent home.

The purpose of the Healthy Kids Act is to establish physical activity requirements for students in kindergarten through 12th grade and to establish nutritional content standards for food and beverages sold on or provided on school grounds during the school day (first bell to last bell).

Please use caution when sending birthday and holiday treats. We have many students with food allergies. Their safety is our primary concern! We highly encourage you to order snacks from the Pleasant Valley Food Service.

 
  
 
"We can make a commitment to promote vegetables and fruits and whole grains on every part of every menu. We can make portion sizes smaller and emphasize quality over quantity. And we can help create a culture — imagine this — where our kids ask for healthy options instead of resisting them."
