Providing healthy snacks for children helps them grow and develop and supports life-long good eating habits. ��Serving nutritious snacks as part of a healthy diet can help prevent disabling diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and obesity. ��Just as important as serving healthy food items, is serving the right portion. �Make sure a snack is a snack�small and satisfying. Please avoid sending foods of poor nutritional quality such as cookies, cakes, pastries, candies, fruit roll-ups, ice cream, chips, sodas, and other sweetened drinks.

Following are just a few ideas of healthy snacks and drinks for you to bring to school when it�s your turn to provide refreshments for the classroom, parties, birthday treats, and other school activities. �If you have questions or other snack ideas, please contact your child�s teacher. ���

Visitor/Volunteer Policy
Visitors are to check in at the main office. When a visitor checks in at the office the office staff will make a determination if the visitor is a volunteer or visitor. A volunteer will be issued a one type of name tag and a visitor will be issued another type of name tag.

In addition our staff is all required to wear a photo identification card. Our substitute teachers also are required to wear a certain type of name tag. This policy includes those individuals that are attending a field trip with our students. If a person is going to attend a field trip they need to first check in at our office. All of these measures are to help keep our school as safe as possible. Thanks for your cooperation
