Snack and Parties

We have students with food allergies and other serious health issues in virtually every classroom. To ensure the safety of all students, only fresh fruits and vegetables are allowed to be eaten in the classrooms for snack. For these and other reasons, no food is allowed at class parties at Central School. Students can bring a fresh fruit or vegetable from home for snack during the class party if that is what is decided by the room parents and classroom teacher.

Food and candy CANNOT be used for games or activities during classroom parties (no using them as bingo pieces or to build 3-D shapes), etc. If you are a room parent and have a question about whether an item can be used, please check with the health office.
