Healthy Food Policy

Celebrations and Food Policy

We understand that parents and friends like to celebrate various occasions. However, balloons, cakes, candy, flowers etc. cause many distractions and cannot be allowed on campus or on the bus. These items are disruptive in the classrooms and are a safety concern on the bus. If they are delivered they will be kept in the office. Cheyenne provides an environment that models healthy behavior. Non-food alternatives only will be used for celebrations such as student birthdays and /or star performer. The three regular classroom parties for holidays and end of the year will be exempt from this rule, as are activities used for specific instruction such as Johnny Appleseed, Colonial Day, and Greek Day. We ask parents to think about healthier alternatives for these other celebrations in order to reduce the amount of fatty and sugary foods that are given to our children.
