Celebrating Birthdays at School with Smart Snacks

Celebrating birthdays at school is certainly fun and memorable for our students. All students have an opportunity to celebrate by sending trinkets or treats to share. Due to district policy, if treats are brought in they must be on the USDA Smart Snacks list and also must be store-bought and sealed. There are many delicious, fun and healthy approved items including cookies, puddings, snack crackers, fruit snacks and ice cream treats. Additional details can be found at https://www.republicschools.org/healthservices. While this is a change from previous years, only allowing snacks from this list to be brought into classrooms will assist in making sure we are able to meet student allergy needs along with providing healthy snacks for students as birthdays and celebrations are a regular occurrence.
