Wellness Policy

Wellness Policy

Our District has developed a Wellness Policy that is focused on improving the health of students.  The policy, required by USDA, is currently reviewed, assessed, and modified for district approval by SHAC, which is made up of parents, teachers, administrators, students, health professionals, and interested community members who review the district-wide nutrition and physical activity policies.  The SHAC meets, at a minimum, four per times per year.  If you are interested in participating, you may contact Erica Garcia or Dora Peña at FNS.

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.
