The following schedule pertains to Mondays-Thursdays. If you are running late, you may find your child waiting in the office. There was a spare stash of super awesome treats for dd on days when someone brought a no-no snack. Your child is still able to eat what they like in the lunch room, where a peanut-free table will be available for allergic students or students who have not brought nut products with them that day. That person needs to be able to focus on teaching, praising, and molding our children for the future. Leave your comment here: All comments are moderated. However, there are other ways we can help make a successful season.
If you would like, you may send a simple snack that day for your child to share with classmates, keeping in mind we have about 26 students. That may be the best way to address it, if the school's staff and director are cooperative. Teacher really didn't care, is my opinion. One student should not decide decisions for the majority of the class. While a great many parents will pay attention to those rules, others may be less aware of the impact of food allergies if their child doesn't have one. I am actually close to taking her out and trying to find somewhere else because I feel like I am not getting anywhere.

It was quickly clear that 1 the teacher would always err on the side of caution and 2 the parents were pretty good label readers.
Here is some information that you should know about our classroom. I had a kid who ate only organic and another who couldn't eat anything with dyes in it. She said they are a nut free center, which I knew they were. Even fewer have even a vague notion about the risks of of food. Many blessings, Jacob Pierce Director of Recreation Ministry jpierce idlewildchurch. Be prepared that some parents will not send anything so I always have a stash of snacks in case this happens.
If a student does not select a fruit or vegetable they will be charged more money than what a meal normally cost and if they receive free or reduced breakfast or lunch they will not be able to receive their meal at the free or reduced status unless they select a fruit or vegetable. I had a stash of cupcakes that my son ate when treats were brought into class other then the class parties, where I assisted in the food choices. Best of luck to you and let us know what happens! I truly want their first year of elementary school to be a positive experience. Despite the fact that most elementary schools in the U.

Bragg as a kindergarten aide.

Thank you for taking the time to read it, and whether you are able to give or not, know we deeply appreciate your dedication to your child and our school.

This class is the only full-day kindergarten at this school. I think that also helped. This not only helps reduce the incidence of unwanted and allergenic foods making their way into the classroom for parties and other events, but it also gives parents an idea of why this is happening and why the policy was instituted. However we will charge their account and you will be responsible for clearing the negative balance.
Obviously I still worry a bit, but they have done great thus far. Birthday treats are another story. Perhaps the School director could clarify for all of them, so that you don't run into this again? Nor do we allow a student to buy a snack if they currently owe the cafeteria money. Mornings The playground is unlocked, in the morning, at 8:40am. I'm writing way too late, so I'm sorry I'm bouncing around a lot in this post.
