FOX News (Todd Starnes)-- Parents of children who attend the Harwinton Consolidated School in Connecticut received an email from the principal asking them to not attach candy to Valentine's Day cards.
According to a Fox News report, the email stated “We are asking for parents/guardians to be sure that food products of any kind are not a part of your child’s Valentine’s cards,” Principal Megan Mazzei wrote to moms and dads. “We are working to encourage healthy practices as well as manage food choices in classrooms where food allergies are present in order to maintain a safe environment.”
According to one parent, this is the first time there has been a ban on candy being attached to Valentine's Day cards the students give to one another. Instead of a party, some of the students will instead be treated to "academic Valentine activities."
