Food/Birthday Policy


Please note new policy starting January 29, 2020


WHECES Birthday Policy

The principal will recognize birthdays the last week of each month by visiting classrooms and giving each child celebrating a birthday pencil. For students whose birthdays are in July, they will be recognized in June. Parents and staff will be prohibited from bringing any food items or other edible treats on campus to recognize their child’s birthday.  Instead parents may donate a hard cover book for the library. Your child’s name, birth date and the year of the donation will be written in the book. This policy allows students to receive birthday recognition while complying with LAUSD Board of Education Obesity Policy as well as other federal and state laws related to food service, nutrition requirements, health department regulations, and maximizing the use of students’ instructional time. We thank you for complying with this school policy.
