Nutrition: School Breakfast, Lunch, Snacks

GLCPS reserves the right to confiscate any food, drink, snack, gum or candy brought to school without permission. Students are not allowed to bring drinks to school to drink throughout the day, other than water. Any student who brings a drink other than a clear water bottle will be asked to throw it away prior to entering the building. Students should leave their lunches in their lockers and may not have food or snacks (unless medically indicated) during class time unless teachers have made prior arrangements with students for special occasions (requires nurse/admin approval.) At no time during the school day are energy drinks allowed to be consumed by students. Students will pick up their lunches from their lockers at passing time before lunch. Students may not attempt to take food away from other students either in class or in the cafeteria. 
As stated in the GLCPS Visitor Safety guidelines, students/families are not allowed to order food to be delivered to the school. Doordash, UberEats, and other food/drink deliveries from outside vendors are not permitted at GLCPS unless arrangements are made ahead of time with the school's administration. If a lunch needs to be delivered to a student by a parent/guardian, the lunch must be delivered prior to the start of the student's lunch shift. 
Food Allergy Policy 
We are committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for students. GLCPS understands the increasing numbers of life-threatening allergies among school populations. Recognizing that the risk of accidental exposure to allergens can be reduced in the school setting, GLCPS is committed to working in cooperation with families, students and physicians to minimize risks and provide a safe educational environment for all students. The focus of allergy management shall be on prevention, education, awareness communication and emergency response.
