MCAS Treat Policy

Dear MCAS Families,


The Saint Paul Public Schools Wellness Policy (533.00) supports our students’ health by including more opportunities at school for physical activity and better nutrition. Research demonstrates that eating well and being physically active improves academic achievement. Our goal is to make the healthy choice the easy choice for our students.


Together we can make a difference. Families can help promote a positive learning environment by supporting healthy celebrations and snacks that shift the focus from food to the child.


While MCAS staff will be responsible for most of the Wellness Policy, it specifically ask the following assistance from parents and guardians:


  • Sweet-Free Schools
  • Families are encouraged to pack healthy lunches and snacks
  • Healthy snack ideas include fruits and vegetables


We appreciate your commitment to the wellness and education of our students.


Thank You,

MCAS Staff
