ValDayREMINDER: Valentine's Day Treat Policy - no edible treats

We believe that Valentine's Day can bring out the kid in all of us. It's fun to trade cards and show our appreciation and love towards each other. Treats can be a part of the fun. However, treats don't have to be sticky, sugary candy. If your child(ren) plan to bring treats for Valentine's Day this year, they must be non-edible, non-candy options.
