During the course of any school year, students may desire to bring treats or food items for special events such as holiday parties, international fairs, birthdays, etc. District 47 wants to ensure a positive experience for our students and is concerned for their health and safety when eating food items brought from a variety of households. For these reasons, please follow the snack guidelines below:Birthday treats MAY NOT be food items. Students are just as happy to receive stickers, pencils, toys and other small novelties or perhaps a book or game for the classroom.The health and safety of our students is of utmost concern to the staff of District 47. The observance of these guidelines will help to provide a safe environment when special celebrations are held.
