Manhattan Country School's policy regarding Valentine’s Day:
Please keep in mind that families should not send in cards, sweets, or other treats for Valentine’s Day. Instead, classes will acknowledge what it means to be a good friend to one another and a caring community member. Just as with Halloween, when children should not bring costumes or candy to school, we know that these holidays can be very exciting for children, and we certainly can talk about them in school. As educators, we also know that these holidays can cause children to have intense feelings, such as being overly excited and/or worried. We appreciate your support in keeping these, and other holidays, comfortable for children at school.
