Birthdays are a special time for children, especially when they can celebrate their special day at school with birthday treats for classmates, teachers and staff.
Because these treats are often messy, may contain allergens (peanuts, gluten, nuts, dairy), and are non-nutritious, the staff has created new guidelines that will be used for birthday treats at Arrowhead.
Birthday treats should be individually wrapped for easy, sanitary distribution. Suggestions: • Homemade, bakery or store-bought cookies • Homemade Rice Krispy Treats • Cereal or Cereal Mix • Pretzels • Non-frosted Brownies
Individual commercially packaged items are also accepted and encouraged as it makes it easier for us to know the ingredient contents. Suggestions: • Granola bars • Rice Krispy Treats • Fruit Snacks • Boxes of Raisins
Non-food items are also an option: • Pencils • Erasers • Stickers
The following items are NOT ACCEPTABLE for birthday treats: • Cupcakes • Cakes • Donuts
Thank you for helping your child celebrate his/her special day while following these guidelines. This will help us to keep kids safe and will reinforce healthy habits that you teach at home.
Just a reminder that Birthday Party Invitations or any invitations are not allowed to be handed out at school.
