Drop and Go Medical Donations - Starting Saturday March 28th!
Background: The Healthy Food Choices, Healthy Kids committee (an advisory committee represented by parents, teachers, CSEA members, High School students, the Wellness Committee, and administrators) made advisory recommendations to the Administration on improving the food services program beginning in the 2008-09 school year. The recommendations were based on benchmarking local school districts, focus groups with Byram Hills parents and staff, and an online survey of all parents, middle and high school students, and employees. The Administration utilized the Committee’s work in presenting recommendations to the Board of Education, and those recommendations were unanimously supported by the Board in April 2008.
