WELLNESS POLICY GOALS & GUIDELINES
- Principals will report health information through collection of annual data by physical education teachers, health teachers, PE prep aides, school nurses, or elementary teachers. Such evidence will be forwarded to the Wellness Committee by June 1st each year.
- Educational opportunities will be provided for teachers in nutrition and physical activities to help them understand and advocate good health practices. Teachers will integrate nutrition and physical activities into their core curriculum.
- Gold Medal Schools, Healthy Child, Golden Sneakers, and Presidential and National Fitness Awards, are recommended programs that promote physical activities.
- It is recommended that lunch recess be held before lunch.
- Students will be educated and encouraged to
achieve and maintain a lifetime of health and fitness. It is recommended that each school’s
community council address activities that promote wellness and health. Suggestions might include but are not
limited to the following:
- Promote family dinners.
- Have physical activity as homework.
- Turn off the TV and electronic games.
- Make it safer and easier to walk or bike to school.
- Teachers should use caution in withholding physical activity as a consequence for being unprepared.
- District employees are encouraged to participate in healthy lifestyle activities and programs.
- Schools are to explore other ideas to generate revenue rather than vending machine and candy sales.
- Teachers are encouraged to reduce the use of food as a reward and minimize lunchtime consequences that inadvertently disrupt normal lunchroom procedures. If the school elects to have classroom treats, teachers will encourage parents to send nutritious snacks after lunch.
- Schools will allow adequate time for eating meals.
