The ICCSD is committed to providing a safe and healthy learning environment for our students. Due to the increase in food allergies and concerns with childhood obesity, changes are being made to the district’s Wellness Policy regarding classroom snacks, birthday treats and classroom celebrations.
When food is served to students in the classroom as a snack, birthday treat, or during a classroom celebration, the following rules apply (ICCSD Wellness Policy 507.9):
Selected elementary schools are piloting the celebration of birthdays without food. Please check with your child’s school to see if they are doing this pilot. Thank you in advance for assisting us in adhering to the Wellness Policy expectations.
