I'm not really sure where to post this, but I was wondering how many people's kids have milk w/ snack at school? I know there are a lot of ppl here w/ school aged kids.
All along, since orientation the school said They provide milk @ snack time. I never thought twice about it- just recently my son said they aren't allowed drinks, only a few sips of water from the fountain. It kind of ticks me off. Who wants to eat crackers without a drink? And I hate knowing he drinks out of a public fountain that 5 kids with colds just drank out of.
Yes, I could be over reacting......I was just wondering what other public schools policies on snack time are. This is my first child in school, I don't really know what the norm is....

At our school, only kindergarteners have a designated snack time. The teachers vary in how they handle it. Two of the teachers assign a day to each student for them to provide snacks and drinks for the entire class. The other teachers have each child bring their own snack and drink from home. If they forget a drink, they can go to the water fountain.

At the schools in our district, kids can either buy their morning snack or bring it from home. If they buy, there are usually a few options (cereal, muffin, etc.) and chocolate or regular milk. When my kids were younger, I would usually send a small snack in addition to their lunches, like a package of crackers and a juice box. As far as I know, milk has always been included with snack and lunch.

Our kids do not get morning milk (I wish they did!), but they are required to bring in a daily, healthy, peanut free snack. They are also allowed to bring in a water bottle, but if they don't they can drink from the bubbler... drinking fountain for all you non-Wisconsinites

We do snacks at my school, and there's no drink. The water fountain is always available, but most of the kids don't seem to care.

I am in Massachusetts and we call it a bubbler too! Funny! What do you call those things either chocolate or rainbow, you put on your ice cream?

Sorry I didn't answer the question too excited to see bubbler. No school aged kids anymore....but she could buy milk during snack time through 5th grade, then no more snack.

For those of you whose kids can buy milk at snack, do they also get milk at breakfast and lunch? Our school gives out milk twice a day (breakfast and lunch) which seems like plenty to me. We have morning snack, which is provided by parents in rotation, and afternoon snack, which is provided by the school, but neither has a drink with it.

I am a preschool teacher. My school provides lunch with milk and than snack with juice. That's kinda messed up they don't give them anything to drink.

All elementary grades have snack time here. If a child wants a snack/drink they have to pack one from home. Everyone is encouraged to bring a water bottle and keep it at their desk to sip from throughout the day.

Thanks! Seems like everybody else gets a drink w/ snack, who has snack. I'm not saying they all have to have milk or juice- I just don't think it'd be that hard to get them a Dixie cup filled w/ water from a Brita pitcher or let us send a bottle from home. I don't know if it was a budget cut or they are too lazy to clean up the once in a while spill. To me, it feels so wrong not giving them a drink w/ their snack! I am going to say something when they go back to school after Easter.

My kids have snack. And if they want a drink they can bring one from home. They bring a water bottle to school every day. Will they not allow you to send in a drink? The only time milk was provided (for a fee) was in half day kindergarten. Or my boys can buy it now during lunch.

Pick your battles. You don't want to be "that" parent when they are getting ready to assign his teacher for next year.
