Classroom Parties

Classroom Party Guidelines
Jeffco Schools School Board Policy and a document developed by a consortium of various religions and civil rights groups, Religion in the Public Schools, that summarizes case law and Supreme Court decisions were used to guide our decision making around class parties. Schools are asked to use sensitivity around participation in activities where a student or their family may feel like an outsider.

NUT AND OTHER FOOD ALLERGIES: For the safety of our students with severe food allergies we ask all parents to respectfully send treats for classroom parties that do NOT have nuts and to check with teachers first before sending snacks to the classrooms at anytime. Thank you for helping keep all of our students safe.

Individual Student Birthday Parties / Invitations to Parties:
Birthday parties and birthday  treats for students or teachers are not permitted in the classroom or cafeteria. Teachers usually have a system of recognizing student birthdays within the classroom, free of food.

If students receive balloons, flowers, singing telegrams, etc. for their birthday, items will be retained in the office until the end of the school day.

Students should not bring birthday or party invitations to school to distribute. Please call or mail invites to parties from home. This is more work but helps us create a more welcoming environment for all of our students.

Parents are not allowed to bring in food from outside for children other than their own, unless organized by PTA or coordinated by the teacher in conjunction with a unit of study. This applies to the classroom as well as the cafeteria.  We do have  students with severe allergies and food should not be brought without prior approval
