The Wellness Committee met on April 27, 2011, and formulated a policy addressing treats for classroom celebrations. The policy states:

“For the safety of all children, all treats furnished for students, including birthday treats, must be commercially purchased. These treats should be kept simple and in a form that is easy to pass out to students in the class.”
