Birthdays at DPES

Birthdays are recognized in your child's class during their morning announcements.
Birthday Treats for Students
Parents are welcome to bring a treat for their child's class at lunch the week of their birthday.  We ask that you follow these procedures:
  • Check with your child's teacher if there are any food allergies.  It would be appreciated if treats were chosen that all students could eat or an alternate treat be brought for those with food allergies.
  • Ice cream purchased from the cafeteria can be provided for the celebration. Or, district policy states that only store-bought and individually wrapped items may be provided to students.  
When you arrive in the cafeteria, your child can sit with you at the parent table as normal (lunch visitors can come following Labor Day). Please let a cafeteria monitor know you have treats so they can be distributed before the class is released.
Please have birthday treats for students such as flowers, balloons, stuffed animals, etc. delivered to your home and not school.  District policy states these items cannot be delivered to school.
