Dear Woodside School Families,

The Board of Trustees and school staff have worked hard to establish a list of agreements about food being provided to our students during the school day.

We expect that families will provide their students with a healthy daily snack for recess and make arrangements for lunch either with food from home or from our LunchIsServed hot lunch program.

In addition to those opportunities for food on campus, we have agreed the following:

  • Celebration such as birthdays, holidays and academic events will be agreed upon by the grade level team of teachers and room parents. Those agreements will be communicated to all families at that grade level.
  • Food for reward will no longer be permitted with the one exception of students who have specific formal needs.
  • Brain break snacks will be provided by the school district through a pilot program we are engaging in with The Fruit Guys to deliver farm-fresh fruit for the students.  

Thank you for your patience through this conversation. If you have questions for clarification please do not hesitate to contact me.

Warmly,

Superintendent Beth Polito
