Birthdays (and “Half-Birthdays” for kids with summer birthdays) can be especially important to young children. Birthday kids sometimes like to bring in a special treat for their friends.
Per TESD Regulation 5402, "...No food of any kind is permitted to be brought to school to be shared with students in connection with recognition of birthdays...at the grades K-4 level." Stickers or other small, inexpensive items can be a special treat for classmates, and will be handed out at the end of the day.
Thank you so much for helping to keep our classroom a fun, safe, and healthy environment for all of our kids!
