Our genuine concern for your child’s development and health is the primary reason behind the BMS nutritional guidelines. As a participant in the National School Lunch Program, BMS serves hot lunches that meet the nutritional requirements of the program, providing 30% of the FDA recommended daily nutrients. Also, Early Childhood classrooms offer daily healthy snacks. We strive to model lifelong healthy eating habits by limiting refined sugars and encouraging a balance of whole foods including proteins, whole grains, and fresh fruits and vegetables, and any food brought to school (lunches, classroom celebrations, etc.) should adhere to this model. Please do not bring candy or sugary drinks to school and use your best judgement for all other items.
Please note we are a NUT-FREE CAMPUS, which includes all peanuts and tree nuts. We ask that parents do not send these items to school for lunch or Elementary or After Care snacks.
