District Wellness Policy
No more cupcakes in the classroom...

“A Wellness Policy is an important tool for parents, educational agencies and school districts in promoting student wellness, preventing and reducing childhood obesity, and assuring that school meal nutrition guidelines meet the minimum federal school meals standards. It contains goals specifically for nutrition promotion and education, physical activity, and other school based activities that promote student wellness.” -USDA

May I still bring treats for the class on my child’s birthday or general classroom celebration?
