Safe Snack and Party List

Safe Snack and Party List 

The guidelines below should be for rare and special occasions only (such as: birthday and holiday parties). Consider skipping treats and snacks in favor of time and attention. What students and educators will tell you is that they would prefer doing an activity such as a game or craft. Such activities have a lasting impact and improve learning. 


  1. All foods should be pre-approved by your child’s classroom teacher.

  2. You will notice that some of the items on the list are what we would refer to as “empty calorie” foods  such as potato chips and candy. 

  3. All snacks should be individually packaged, and include carbohydrate counts for our students with diabetes. No home made foods permitted.

  4. It is imperative that you keep the school nurse aware of any food reactions, so we can update this information in our student information system.

  5. Please keep things simple. 


  • Fresh Fruits and Vegetables are always welcome. However, there may be a student in your child’s classroom with a fruit or vegetable allergy. Please ask your child’s teacher what fruit/vegetable should NOT be brought into this classroom. No dips please
