SGASD Snack Policy

Dear Parents,

 In an effort to maintain a healthy environment for all students during the school day, we respectfully ask that you refrain from sending food treats to school to celebrate upcoming holidays.

PDE Nutrition Guidelines specify that ANY “party” will offer a MAXIMUM of 2-3 items that contain added sugar as the first ingredient AND will provide fresh fruit / vegetable choice and water, 100% fruit juice, or milk.

Should your child’s teacher wish to provide a small treat for the classroom, the teacher will contact a few parents to coordinate what will be shared.  Please understand that if you do not coordinate these treats with the teacher, we may not be able to serve it on a given day.

We appreciate your cooperation with our efforts to educate students about healthy eating habits and physical activity.

Thank you!

Jon D. Weaver

Spring Grove Elementary School
