Posted August 16, 2022

Please review and download our District Approved Snack Lists for the 2022-23 school year BY CLICKING HERE.


AN IMPORTANT NOTE FOR FAMILIES: this list is provided to assist parents as they plan for classroom events and celebrations. The requirements on this list apply only to food shared with other students, and not to food provided by parents to their own children.

  • Food distributed to elementary students during the school day in the elementary buildings must appear on the District Approved Snack List for 2022-23. Pages 3-4 of that document include District-approved candies.

  • For class parties such as Halloween or Valentines Day, children may bring any candy of their choice as long as it will be sent home with other children and not eaten in the classroom.

  • Homemade prepared or homemade foods are not permitted to be distributed or shared. Example: you may send one homemade cookie for your child to eat, but you may not send a platter of homemade cookies for your child to share for their birthday.

  • At the middle and high school level, food provided to students during the school day in the classroom must be commercially prepared.
