snacks and lunch
If your child has allergies (including food allergies) or dietary restrictions, please record this information on your Application for Enrollment and on the child’s pre-admission Health History forms, both found in the enrollment packet. Your child’s teacher will be alerted and precautions will be taken.
We serve nutritious mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks and publish each month a snack calendar. A sample snack calendar is available for your information. The snack calendar is posted on classroom bulletin boards and is available in the school office.
We are a NUT FREE school in order to keep all our children safe who have, or may have, nut allergies. Please do not send peanut butter sandwiches, whole nuts, or granola bars with nuts etc to school. If you have packed sunflower spread sandwiches (that resembles peanut butter), please let your child’s teacher know to avoid confusion.
Parents provide lunches for children. Please pack a balanced nutritional lunch for your child. There are microwaves in all the classrooms, so teachers can reheat food if desired. As we do not have refrigeration space, we suggest you pack an ice pack to help keep foods cool if necessary. Lunch boxes, thermos, and food containers should be labeled with you child’s name. Please do not send sugary foods, candy, gum or carbonated beverages.
Every Friday we offer the parents the option of not packing their child's lunch--yay! We will provide cheese pizza from a neighborhood pizzeria, fruit and beverage. The cost is $75 for 4 months, September through December, January through April and June through August. To sign your child up for this treat, and you for the respite from lunch packing, simply look for the sign-up sheet in your child's classroom about one week before the beginning of the new period. You can include the $75 fee in your tuition check.
