Chips/Food Policy

Our school’s healthy food policy only allows single size servings and students are not allowed to share their chips, etc.

 

What we do when students bring chips/hot chips bags exceeding the snack serving size:

 

1. Confiscate, label the bag with the student’s name and bring it to the front office

 

2. Reassure students that they must pick up the bag at the end of the day in the office. No chip bags will be kept overnight; it will be thrown away if not claimed by the owner.
