Food Celebrations in the Classroom

Many of our students have medical conditions that involve food allergies, intolerances, and sensitivities, as well as diseases that restrict their food choices.  It is the policy of the FMSD that homemade or home baked foods are not to be brought into the schools to share with other students. COVID mitigation strategies are currently in place and students are not allowed to bring in any food to share with others. 

Board Policy- JLCDD Food Allergy Guidelines Issued 5/14


Students are not allowed to bring in food to share with others, but food may be purchased from the cafeteria for celebrations. This helps our teachers with ensuring that our students are receiving the appropriate foods.
