2018-2019 Snack Guidelines
As safety is always a top concern at MCS, we are asking all parents to refrain from sending in foods (for snack) that contain peanuts, tree nuts, or have been made in a facility that processes peanuts or tree nuts. Any item may, however, be brought into the cafeteria for lunch. Certain procedures are in place to monitor the safety of all of our students. Please continuously check labels of snacks sent into school, as ingredient lists can often change. It is preferred that any item sent into school for your child’s snack, contain a food/ingredients label so that ingredients can be checked.
These guidelines are to serve only as a resource. They are in no way complete and are subject to manufacturer recalls and mislabeling. Manufacturers may have changed their equipment/product lines and method since you last purchased an item listed on this sheet.
