The district recognizes that healthy students are better learners, and therefore aims to promote student wellness and overall health through practices such as good nutrition, health and physical education, physical activity and mental health. We are committed to providing school environments that promote and protect children’s health, well-being, and ability to learn.
Healthy eating is demonstrably linked to reduce risk for mortality and development of many chronic diseases. To ensure the health and well-being of all students, the district’s wellness committee will promote and monitor student wellness in a manner that is appropriate in the following areas:
- Nutrition guidelines
- Nutrition education
- Physical activity
- Parent, community and staff involvement; and
- Other school-based activities
- Parent, community and staff involvement.
The district’s Wellness Policy (# 5405) was adopted by the Board of Education in May 2018. The complete wellness policy can be found on Board Docs.
