The State of Iowa has mandated a new set of guidelines (“Healthy Kids Act”) to promote wellness in schools. In order to promote wellness in a manner that Iowa Department of Education and Lourdes Catholic School deem appropriate, there are notable changes at LCS this school year.
The soda machines in the PAC and faculty lounge have been removed. Physical Education minutes per week have been increased. The “Healthy Bake Sale” fundraiser has been eliminated. Some grade levels have opted to remove snacks from their daily routine.
If your child’s classroom allows birthday treats (please check with each individual teacher due to allergy reasons and/or school policy), please only provide a store-packaged item. Items must arrive to school in a sealed container with a visible nutrition label. The LCS school policy for food options does apply to holiday parties, but will be relaxed only for Christmas, Halloween, and Valentine's Day.
