In our continuous effort to provide a safe environment for all of our students, the staff at Boyce is requesting that cupcakes and other food items no longer be brought into school for birthdays and other celebrations during lunchtime. We do encourage families to celebrate and recognize birthdays and other special occasions, however, we are requesting that you do so with alternative items. Such items could include the following:
- Crayons or markers
On occasion, teachers may plan celebrations quarterly in which food items are brought into the classroom. This practice will continue as it allows considerations to be made ahead of time for those students with special dietary needs. We appreciate your support as we continue to refine and evaluate practices that benefit all of our students.
Further details concerning quarterly celebrations: One classroom celebration per quarter may be held during regular instructional time.
