Please pack a water bottle for your child each day with his/her name written on it.
Balanced and nutritious meals can help children stay focused and provide fuel for their growth and development. Kindergartners will need to bring two snacks and a lunch to school daily.
Tips for packing your child's snack/lunch box:
1- We encourage you to pack food that is low in fat and sugar, no candy, potato chips, or non-fruit juice drinks please.
2- Please pack snacks and lunch in separate, leak proof containers or ziplock bags within their lunch box.
3- Avoid glass containers.
4- If an item needs cutting or peeling, please do so before packing.
5- If an item needs a spoon or a fork to be eaten, please pack a spoon or a fork in your child's lunch box.
6- For your child's safety, if you send items that need refrigeration please pack along an ice pack to keep food cold until ready to eat.
7- Please write your child's name on his or her lunch box.
