We promote healthy schools by supporting physical and mental wellness, good nutrition and regular physical activity as a part of our total learning environment. We support a healthy learning environment where students and staff will live healthier, more balanced and productive lives.
Our group meets once a month, typically on a Wednesday afternoon. Dates and times will be posted to the district website homepage under Events.
Meetings are held at the District Administration Building at 305 Wiley Street in Holcomb.
State and Federal Laws require a local school wellness policy be developed and implemented no later than the beginning of the 2006-2007 school year. The board of education is required to promote and monitor the local wellness program. Kansas public schools must have a written wellness policy in order to be in compliance with KSDE (Kansas State Department of Education) and the NSLP (National School Lunch Program) requirements to receive both state and federal funding.
As a group, we will develop goals for:
School-based activities designed to promote staff and student wellness
Nutrition guidelines for all foods available in each school building during the school day
