Local School Wellness Policy
School districts that participate in the National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program, or any other federal Child Nutrition programs are required by federal law to establish a Local School Wellness Policy for all schools under their jurisdiction. Local School Wellness Policies are an important tool for parents and school districts in promoting student wellness, preventing and reducing childhood obesity, and providing assurance that school meal nutrition guidelines meet the minimum federal school meal standards.
To accomplish this work, a Wellness Committee was established in October 2018. The group was comprised of a broad representation of stakeholders, including parents/guardians, Nutrition Services staff, Governing Board members, school administrators, teaching staff members, physical education teachers, school health professionals, and representatives from several community agencies. The Wellness Committee meets monthly and we welcome the participation of anyone interested in this.
