Full Wellness Policy

In April 2015, the Board of Education approved an updated wellness policy that was developed through a collaborative community process. 

Wellness Policy (P5167) (pdf)  meets all the provisions of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (HHFKA), and provides all schools with a framework to actively promote the health and wellness of students, staff and families; it includes guidelines related to nutrition, nutrition education, food and beverage marketing, physical education  physical activity, and staff wellness.  The Wellness Policy is meant to inspire and empower a shift in culture that will increase healthy eating and physical activity among our students by creating environments that encourage and support healthy choices. 

Each school is encouraged to establish a School Wellness Committee to help implement and evaluate adherence to the Policy and to create a ‘school wellness report card’ to detail progress.
