School Wellness Initiative

  • The mission of the District is to prepare all students for success in college, career and life. The District recognizes that schools play a critical role in creating a healthy environment for the prevention of childhood obesity and combating problems associated with poor nutrition and lack of physical activity. The School Wellness Policy encourages all members of the District and community to maintain an environment that enhances maximum student intellectual, social, emotional and physical potential (collectively, “Wellness”).
