Download: Should Elementary Schools Ban Valentine’s Day Candy?
A school in Connecticut is taking Valentine’s candy out of Valentine’s Day.
According to Fox News, the principal emailed parents telling them to keep candy off of the cards students exchange.
The message said the school was working to encourage healthy practices and was also trying to limit choices in the presence of students with allergies.
Some teachers were going to allow “healthy snacks” while others wanted to keep all food out of their classroom.
Fox News reported the school nurse sent an additional letter to parents suggesting art supplies in lieu of candy.
