Student Birthday Celebrations

Starting at the beginning of the 2018-19 school year, student birthdays should only be recognized with non-food celebrations. Many schools already have similar policies in place and celebrate students through other types of fun recognition. This standard is an addition to the guidance on healthy celebrations and non-food rewards in the District Wellness Policy and Guidelines.

The Wellness Policy is based on federal requirements, community input, and addresses nutrition, allergy, and equity concerns.  More information, including implementation ideas. We will be also be sharing ideas developed by Jeffco students on healthy ways to recognize birthdays. Thank you for creating healthy, equitable environments in your schools!
