What if my family does not keep kosher or Shabbat?

Many of the guidelines at HDS are based on our inclusive philosophy; kashrut is no different. We want all families to feel welcome at HDS. We ask that families respect our recommendations so that all feel included. Our school is dairy only, and when food is shared it needs to have a hechsher (kosher symbol) on it and, if it needs preparation, be prepared in our own kitchen. Similarly, we ask that in respect of families who keep Shabbat, birthday parties be hosted on Sundays or during the week.
