Snack Suggestions and Tips

On your scheduled snack day, please bring enough snacks for the students, teachers, and parent helpers (approx 20 for TTh and 24 for MWF) and any needed utensils, plates or napkins.  Snacks must be prepackaged/store-bought and sent to school in the original packaging; no food preparation (portioning into individual bags, cutting of fruit, etc) can be done at home. Homemade treats are acceptable on birthdays and special occasions only.  We also ask you provide drinks on your snack day.  This can be either a large jug of water/juice or individual drinks.

Due to the increasing numbers of children with food allergies in our membership, we would ask for your attention and care when selecting snacks to bring on your snack day.  PLEASE read the labels of the products you would like to bring.

  • We ask that you completely avoid any snacks that contain any kind of nuts (especially peanuts), as they can cause the most severe and life-threatening reactions (including foods that contain traces of nuts or foods manufactured in a facility that also handles nuts).
  • Please also avoid snacks that contain dairy and egg
  • Milk as an additive is acceptable, but please avoid yogurt, cheese, or milk boxes

Thank you!
