• Tahoe Lake Wellness Policy

    All birthday celebrations must be prearranged with the classroom teacher and will not include any food items.  Some ideas to celebrate a birthday are
    -Stickers, pencils or erasers for each child in the class.
    -Donation of a book to the classroom or school library in your child’s name.
    -Planning a special art, science or other activity with your child’s teacher.

    • Classroom celebrations (holidays, 100th Day of School, etc.) will focus on healthy food choices with not more than one non-nutritious food or beverage per celebration.  Class celebrations will be held after the lunch period whenever possible.
    • Only healthy snack items will be offered at the annual Walk-a-thon.
    • Sodas will not be sold at school fundraising events and the majority of foods offered will be considered healthy.
    • Food will not be used as a reward or a punishment at school or in the classroom.
    • Students are not allowed to bring sodas to school, and should not bring candy for the morning snack.
    • All school staff are encouraged to serve as positive role models in promoting an active and healthy lifestyle for students.
    • The Tahoe Lake community (students, parents and staff) support TTUSD in wanting to provide the best possible learning environment for our students.  To do so we will strive to provide a school wide environment that supports and reinforces healthy behaviors for all of our students.
