Sharing the Road with School Buses

As we get back into our “Back to School” morning and afternoon routines, we wanted to remind families of the importance of driving safely and sharing the road with our student buses. As a friendly reminder:
Do not pull over to load or unload in areas designated as “Bus Zones.”
In all 50 states, it is illegal to pass a school bus that is stopped.
The yellow flashing lights on a school bus indicate that they are preparing to stop in order to pick up or drop of children.
Red flashing lights indicate that children are getting on or off the bus.
Traffic in both directions on undivided roadways must stop while red lights are flashing. Do not attempt to pass a stopped school bus with red lights on.
Remember that children are unpredictable and often ignore potential hazards.
Never block a crosswalk.
Take extra caution near school zones, parks, and residential areas.
Watch out for students who are crossing streets or riding bicycles:
The most common cause of collisions with bicycles are drivers turning left or right in front of the path of a bicycle.
Check your mirrors before opening any doors when parked on the street to reduce the chance of a bicyclist riding into it.
We hope to see all drivers modeling safe and respectful behavior for our students.

Healthy Foods

Schools across California are required to meet certain criteria as it relates to food being served and advertised on school campuses, in classrooms, and during the school day. The following guidelines for Moreland School District can be found on our website on the Wellness Page. Schools are audited for adherence to these rules. We are scheduled for a review in April 2018 and your help in this area is appreciated.

Food and Nutrition Highlights from Moreland's Wellness Policy:
All non-compliant Smart Snack food items cannot be served or sold from 12:01AM until 30 minutes after school.
To ensure students are nourished with a proper meal, classroom parties with Smart Snack compliant food will be scheduled only after lunchtime.
All food and beverages marketed or promoted to students on the school campus during the school day must meet or exceed the USDA Smart Snacks standards. This may include:
Advertisements in school publications or school mailings
Free product samples, taste tests or coupons of a product, or free samples displaying advertising of a product
Food and beverage marketing often includes oral, written or graphic statements.
California Food Act requires a permit for all home prepared foods. Moreland School District cannot serve any home baked food products to students at any time for liability reasons. MEF and Home and School Clubs can serve prepared foods after the school day or on weekends.
Classroom celebrations must be Smart Snack compliant and served after Lunch is served. Non Food celebrations can occur any time during the school day.
Food and beverages should not be used as a reward, or withheld as punishment for any reason, such as performance or behavior.

Breakfast in the Classroom!

We are excited to announce that Anderson qualified for a breakfast and lunch program that would allow all students to eat at no cost to the family. In order to keep us qualified for this program, we need all families to complete the free and reduced meal forms regardless of your income. The information on these forms is confidential and staff members are available to assist anyone who needs help completing the forms. Students will eat breakfast in their classroom from 8:00 to 8:15 while they complete morning work. If your child arrives late to school they will miss breakfast. Breakfast will not be served before school or during recess. Your child is welcome to bring a snack from home to eat during morning recess if they are hungry.
