Classroom Snack Safety Reminder
****IMPORTANT SNACK SAFETY REMINDER****
Dear Staff, Parents and Students,
As classroom parties are being planned, may we please remind parents and staff-there are students throughout all grade levels with LIFE-THREATENING allergies to nuts. We are appealing for your assistance in maintaining their safety in school.
Classrooms are nut-safe areas, no nuts or nut products may be eaten there. However, ANY food may be eaten in the cafeteria, since there are allergy-safe tables there. ****For snacks that are intended for sharing with the entire class, please ONLY send foods WITH labels that can be checked for safety. Items without labels, whether baked goods or donuts, will be set aside in the classroom. They may be given out by the 'party student' at the door, as students are on their way to lunch or to carry home.
If you are “going green” at home, you may send in smaller portions of nut-free food, for your child only, in reusable containers, and keep the larger quantity at home, again-no nuts or nut products, please. However, for food to be shared with all classmates, please only send in labeled food items.
Parents often call to inquire about classroom snacks, so the list below is provided as a helpful reference. We do not endorse these items, nor the companies that manufacture them. Rather, we hope you will consider “Healthy Food” snacks and parties during the year, with natural alternatives such as fresh fruit, dried fruit, vegetables, yogurt, and cheese.
***Please remember the Healthy Party Treats from Chartwells are available from our own Chartwells cafeteria manager-Mrs. Joyce Baumbach. The flyer with the prices and selections is posted on the SFE E Friday Folder. If you have quiesitons on this, please feel welcome to call Mrs. Baumbach, cafeteria manager, directly at 215 944 2411. What could be easier than making a call and writing a check!!
