Just curious as to what different policies are.
We got the class newsletter today with the party time, with the instructions that "due to severe allergies, medical conditions and a desire to promote healthy lifestyles, we will celebrate parties with raw fruit and vegetables only."
I believe this goes for birthday parties as well.
I understand why they have this policy, and I'll find some kind of cute Halloween fruit-monsters to make. But it's definitely one of the strictest snack policies I've heard of on here (the district also discontinued daily snack because of the number of allergies). And it still makes me a little wistful that DD1 won't be able to bring cupcakes or other treats on special occasions. I loved that when I was in school.
If anybody has links to web sites that have creative fruit and/or veggie snack ideas for Halloween, I'd appreciate it.
