DMUSD Wellness Policy

Dear Parents,

As we celebrate the holidays, please be reminded that the District’s Wellness Policy includes the following requirements for food brought on campus for students:

All food brought on campus by parents, teachers, or staff for students should be store bought, prepared, and pre-wrapped, including a listing of the ingredients.  No home cooked foods should be served on campus to students in order to minimize the risk of allergic reactions and foodborne illness. This does not include individual student lunches.

This requirement was put into place to protect the health and safety of our students.  For students with food allergies, it is imperative that a listing of the ingredients is available in order to determine whether the food is safe to eat.  Please know we appreciate the contributions made by parents and community members, and are always available to answer questions related to this policy.  Feel free to contact your Principal or the Student Services Department at any time.

Sincerely,

Cara Schukoske

Director of Student Services
