Board Policy for Foods Available at School

Organizations are encouraged to use non-food items or healthy foods where appropriate, for fundraising.  Staff are encouraged to avoid the use of non-nutritious foods as a reward for students' academic performance, accomplishments, or classroom behavior.



Parents/guardians or other volunteers are encouraged to support the district's nutrition education program by considering nutritional quality when electing any snacks which they may donate for occasional class parties, and by eliminating foods or beverages that do not meet nutritional standards and are not commercially prepared.  Class parties or celebrations shall be held after the lunch period, and no more frequently than once per month.
