Wellness Policy

The school district recognizes that parents and guardians have a primary role in promoting their student’s health and well-being.  RAS will support parents’ efforts to provide a healthy diet and daily physical activity for their student(s). The school district wellness policy encourages parents to pack healthy lunches and snacks and refrain from including beverages and foods without nutritional value.

At the classroom level, teachers will share their own unique traditions to make each child feel valued on their special day. Students are not allowed to bring treats to share with others due to: an increase in food allergies, the negative effect of sugar on learning, lost time for eating a treat and comparing treats with their peers which often results in hurt feelings. Parents interested in sending student invitations to parties outside of school have the option to opt-in to the RSI PTO Parent directly. We encourage parents to send party invitations electronically or via U.S. mail.
