Wellness Policy

Our District has developed a Wellness Policy that is focused on improving the health of students.  The policy was developed with health and wellness advisory council that includes teachers, parents, students, administrators, guidance counselors, and the school nurse.

Sharing the Message of Wellness

One of our goals is to share the message of nutrition and wellness via our department's Web site that emphasizes the importance of nutrition AND fitness.  Our site provides information on the nutrition and fitness for teachers, parents, and students, as well as, a variety of learning tools.
