PARTIES (on and off campus)
• The principal must approve all class party plans.
• If parents want to celebrate a child’s birthday at school, they may bring refreshments after first contacting the teacher to set up a day and time, including those with the summer birthdays.
• For birthday parties or others (sleep-overs) outside of school, please adhere to these guidelines:
-Invitations may not be distributed in school unless the entire class (or all boys or all girls) is invited. If they are distributed in school, they must be distributed in the mail folders, not by hand.
-If children are to be picked up at school for an off-campus party, please make arrangements with the last period teacher. The pick-up line is not a good choice for picking up students as it can cause some students to feel left out if they are in another grade or for other reasons cannot participate.
• Flowers and/or gift baskets may NOT be delivered to students during class on any school day or at any school-sponsored event or program. Any deliveries may be picked up at the school office.
