I am sending a message to follow up on my earlier message regarding Valentine's Day and to clarify my morning announcement communication. I feel certain that we have confusion. Since Valentine's Day has not been selected as a party day for us this year, we are not allowed to have food for our students to eat in celebration.
If you have purchased cards that have candy attached, please know that these cards will be sent home along with all other Valentines exchanged this Friday. In the future as we are planning for Valentine's Day, we can certainly look for items that are non-food related. However, I do not wish to disappoint any students nor make this a disruption to our learning environment. We will follow NEISD policy and not partake of any a food celebration.
My apologies for the miscommunication as well as the confusion I caused for my staff.
