Students' birthday celebrations
Thank you for taking the time to
review the following school policy which can be found in the
Chalker Parent / Student Handbook.
For children’s birthdays, treats may be brought during lunch
time only, for the teacher to distribute to the students. We are
promoting a more health conscience approach to birthday treats
and ask that you consider bringing mini cupcakes or something
more nutritious. Please do not bring party favors, balloons,
etc. to the classrooms as this can interrupt valuable
Please coordinate all birthday treats beforehand ( 2 days ahead
of time) with the classroom teacher so we can address any
We appreciate your support of this policy as we want to work
with you so that all students can participate in these special

Dear Parents and Guardians,
Did you know that State Child Protective Services has a
policy regarding lack of adequate supervision for children?
State Policy states
that children, ages 13 and above, can act as babysitters for
other children. Children, ages 9 – 12, can occasionally be
left unsupervised for brief periods of time. Children 8
years old and younger should never be left home alone.
Of course, a specific child’s immaturity and behavior
may necessitate adult supervision.
