Snacks/Birthdays – Nutrition Policy

Dear Tapleytown Families

A reminder that all food products are not permitted as whole class birthday treats e.g. cookies, cupcakes, cakes, ice cream, candy, and other sugary treats. Many of our students have dietary needs that do not allow for these additions in their school day. As well, some students experience severe anaphylactic reactions to ingredients in such treats. Alternatives to foods are always welcome. E.g. stickers, pencils, books etc. Fruits and vegetables are delicious and nutritious alternatives that can be enjoyed by all. Please check with your child’s teacher form more information and ideas to celebrate your child’s special day.

Also be aware that we are a Nut Free School.  We have students and staff with life threating allergies.  Any food items brought to the school must be “Nut Safe” or Store Bought.

Tim Horton’s baked goods are NOT Nut Safe products and are not able to go into classrooms.  The health of our students remains our priority and we appreciate your cooperation.

Please see the HWDSB policy.  Nutrition-Procedure.pdf (hwdsb.on.ca)
