BIRTHDAYS AND CELEBRATIONS
VRA’s food policy is ONLY STORE BOUGHT FOOD WITH AN INGREDIENTS LABEL ON THE PACKAGE will be allowed. This is regarding class parties/birthday treats/celebrations/ class treats/sharing of food. Food being brought into school will still need to be pre-approved by the teacher and as always we encourage healthy snacks. We encourage non food items.
Food must be served in the commons area or any outdoor picnic areas, as pre-arranged with the teacher. Birthday treats will not be permitted in the cafeteria. There must be enough snacks/treats available to serve each student within a given classroom who may wish to participate. Balloons, signs, banners, flowers or gifts are not permitted at school. Photography of students during these events is not permitted. Having balloons delivered or brought to school is not allowed.
Donations of books to the school library, in honor of a child’s birthday or other special event, are welcome.
