Fifth Grade Q&A

  • How have party guidelines changed according to the new 17-18 Handbook?

    Posted by:

    Parties will now be from 2:45-3:20pm with the exception of Halloween. The parade will begin at approximately 2:20pm. Parent volunteers may begin to set up at 2:20pm.

     

    Outside food/treats/candy is not permitted for elementary classroom holiday parties (Halloween, Winter, and Valentine’s Day). For classrooms that are interested in providing some type of food/treat, the District’s food service provider, Sodexo, has a list of items that can be purchased in accordance with the health restrictions of students in the classroom. Cost for this option is at the discretion of the parents in the classroom.
