LUNCH AND SNACKS

LUNCH

Children may bring lunch from home or purchase lunch items at the Lyme School. Students eat lunch in the cafeteria supervised by an adult.

For convenience purposes, each student is automatically provided with an individual pre-paid lunch account to purchase lunch and milk in the cafeteria. Accounts may be monitored online for the convenience of families at:

Menus are posted on our website. Menus are based on the nutritional guidelines of the National School Lunch Program.

SNACKS

A nutritious meal before arrival at school and a mid-session snack provide necessary fuel for a child's active mind and body. We ask parents to provide a nutritious snack for their children each day, to be eaten in the classroom during the morning snack period. Gum is not allowed. Healthy snacks are encouraged. Students may not bring glass containers on the school bus or to school, but we recommend that students bring a plastic water bottle.

CELEBRATIONS

Birthdays may be recognized in the classroom. If a child brings a birthday cake or cupcakes at snack time, all children in the class must be included. Unless the entire class is included, private birthday party invitations may not be given out at school.

Children may bring Valentines to school only if they plan to give one to each child in the class.
