Regulation of Shared Foods in the School Environment
In the interest of providing a safe and healthy environment, the Windsor C-1 School District has adopted a new policy effective for all schools, K-12, on food consumption during the school day. Some medical conditions and allergic reactions to food ingredients pose a serious risk to student safety. This risk is typically where food ingredients are unknown or where appropriate food preparation conditions cannot be controlled. Consequently, only prepackaged foods with nutritional labeling may be brought to school for student consumption. Home-prepared foods are not permitted or sold to students during the school day. This policy does not pertain to students’ individual lunches and/or snacks brought from home for personal consumption.
