While the use of non food rewards and celebrations is always preferred, Klein ISD acknowledges that there are instances when foods are used appropriately as part of instruction. Additionally the Texas Education Code §28.002(L-3)(1) permits parents/guardians or grandparents to provide a birthday snack for their child's birthday. The following guidelines apply to such snacks:
The campus nurse will be given a two week advance written notice of the parent / guardian decision to provide food items to students. We can usually accommodate with less notice, however, parents who bring snacks THE DAY OF (without providing any notice), will be turned away.
This includes food in the classroom for instructional purposes - notify Nurse Moseley at least a week ahead of time.
Birthday snacks will be distributed by a Schultz para at the end of the lunch period, after students have had a nutritious meal as defined by the School Lunch Program and Texas Department of Agriculture. If parents bring the snack to the front office AFTER the child’s lunch, the parent will not be allowed to leave the snack.
Written consent from a parent/guardian must be obtained before a student will be permitted to receive and eat a birthday / classroom snack. In order to follow the guidelines specified by Klein Health Services department, we must use the information parents provide in Skyward.
Parents/guardians are encouraged to obtain snacks through the Klein ISD Nutrition & Food Services Department. With advance notice, the Nutrition & Food Services Department can provide a choice from an assortment of snacks.
Any parent/guardian who provides a birthday/ seasonal snack not provided by Klein ISD Nutrition & Food Services must:
Submit to the campus nurse two weeks in advance of serving the snack and provide a complete list of ingredients included in the snack.
In the case of commercially prepared food, the product label must be provided, including the complete ingredient list and all information about production line exposure to known food allergens.
All snacks must be individually wrapped and packaged in a disposable container. Schools will not be responsible for parents’ personal kitchen items.
All snacks must be delivered to the main office by the parent, where a written receipt for them will be prepared. Children will not be permitted to carry snacks to school.
In keeping with the Klein ISD Wellness Policy, parents are encouraged to provide a non food treat for their child’s birthday celebration, such as pencils, pens or stickers. If a food treat is preferred, parents are encouraged to provide a healthy treat for students, such as fruit, yogurt, granola bars, etc.

Your child can celebrate their birthday by becoming a member of the Schultz Birthday Book Club and donate a book to our library!
A bookplate with the student's name and birthday is placed inside the book and they will earn a star on our wall of Birthday Book Club members.
The book is presented to the student around their birthday. The student may keep the book for two weeks and then return it to the library so that other children may read it.
The donated birthday book will become a part of the Schultz Library and will be shared and enjoyed by many students.
Children with summer birthdays can participate at any time during the school year.
