Celebrating Your Child's Birthday in the Lakewood Cafe'
Parents are welcome to bring a treat for their child's class at lunch. We have two requirements for that.
- Ask your child’s teacher if any other students have food allergies. It would definitely be appreciated if treats were chosen that all students could eat or an alternate treat was brought for students with food allergies.
- Bring store-bought items only. It’s not that we don’t love homemade food. Food that is prepared at a restaurant or at a grocery store is guaranteed to be from a health department certified kitchen. Our family kitchens may or may not comply with health department regulations and there is no way for us to know. Also, the parents of the other students in the class are not present to approve or disapprove of their child eating the food items.
When you arrive in the cafeteria, your child can sit with you at the parent table as normal. Please do let the monitor for your child’s table know that you have a treat for the class. Approximately 10 minutes before the end of lunch, you and your child may rejoin the class and distribute the goodies.
Please have birthday treats for your student like flowers, balloons, stuffed animals, etc. delivered to your home and not to school. According to the Tomball ISD Student Handbook, these items are not permitted to be delivered / brought to the school. They are typically distracting to the student and are also difficult to handle at dismissal when a child is trying to sit in car rider line or on a bus or walking / riding home.
