“No Food” Birthday Guidelines


1) No candy, soda or juice in class. This means no candy, soda or juice offered in class by teachers, by other students, or by parents.

2) Limiting sweet treats to once a month. We encourage educationally-appropriate celebrations of all kinds. If they include food, we would like these events to feature healthy food choices. Therefore, a maximum of only one item at one celebration a month may be in a desert/sugary category (fresh fruit is a great alternative!). Please remember that any foods containing trans fats can not be served or sold on any school campus per Ed Code.

3) If a child has a serious allergy to a food, that food should not be served in that student’s class that year. Children with potentially life-threatening allergies cannot be endangered by, or excluded from, shared classroom activities

Celebration Ideas
Instead of bringing food to celebrate your child’s special day, please consider non-food items such as a personalized gift to the classroom or school in the student’s name. Please see the letter from Principal Bob Sherman and a flyer with additional information.

District Seeks I-14 Citizens’ Oversight Committee Applicants
The District Board of Trustees is seeking qualified, interested individuals to apply for membership on the Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee (“COC”) for the implementation of the District’s Measure I (2014) (“I-14”) school facilities bond program.  Measure I-14 is a $48 million bond measure passed in November 2014 that authorizes funding for needed repairs, upgrades, and new construction projects for District schools. The COC will (1) inform the public concerning the District's expenditure of Measure I-14 bond proceeds, (2) review expenditure reports to ensure that bond proceeds are expended only for the purposes set forth in Measure I-14, and (3) present to the Board in public session, an annual written report outlining their activities and conclusions.
If you wish to serve on this important committee, please use the following attachment to download the I-14 COC application and bylaws. 
Completed applications must be submitted to the District Superintendent’s Office by 4:30 PM on May 7, 2015.
