Nutrition Guidelines & Information
The Morris School District is committed to providing healthy and nutritious foods for children while they are in school and supporting parents' efforts to do the same at home. Policy # 8505, "School Nutrition" provides specific information regarding foods that may be sold or distributed in schools. These guidelines, which reflect Department of Education and Board of Health guidelines, apply throughout the school day and include food commonly served during holiday events and other celebrations. Please contact your child's school for holiday and special event food guidelines.
The Morris School District recognizes that birthday celebrations are important to young children and that children enjoy celebrating the event with classmates. Classroom teachers take time out of the day to recognize each student's birthday. In accordance with District guidelines, however, birthday celebrations are foodless.
