Update Regarding Lunch, Recess and Snack Policies

The Minooka 201 Policy Committee held a meeting on February 5, 2015 to discuss the proposed board policies regarding lunch/recess time for grades 1 through 4, second recess for grades 1 through 4, and snacks.  (For some background regarding these proposed policies, see previous posts here, here, and here.)

The Policy Committee meeting was very well attended.  Approximately 30 to 40 people (administrators, staff, parents, and community members) showed up on a brisk winter evening to discuss the proposed policies.  After two hours of discussion, a general consensus was reached to modify each of the proposed policies in various ways.

The resulting versions of the proposed policies can be found here, here, and here.  Comparisons of current versions to the previous versions can be found here, here, and here.

I have requested that each of these proposed policies be placed on the agenda for the next regular board meeting on February 25th.  The lunch/recess policy and the second recess policy will each be on the first reading (since the previous version which had combined the two was voted down).  The snack policy will be on its second reading (since the second reading was tabled).
