Birthdays are a special time that we enjoy sharing with your child. Treats may be sent for your child’s birthday; however, we request that all treats be pre-packaged. We cannot serve homemade goodies. Please give advance notice to your child’s teacher if you intend to bring treats. Please ask the teacher for the number of children who will be in attendance, any food allergies, or special dietary restrictions on the day you plan to bring treats.
Special attention is paid to your child’s needs. Alternative food choices will be provided to protect your child when items that he/she is sensitive are on the menu. You will be required to provide doctor's documentation of your child's allergy. The Academy provides 8th Continent Soy Milk as an alternative choice, other alternative milk products will need to be provided by the family.
Tuition fees include the cost of meals and snacks for your child. You are required to complete the Child and Adult Care Food Program enrollment form so that MSSU may receive reimbursement for food costs in the Lion Cub Academy.
