Wellness Impact Policy Update

Wellness Impact Policy Update - June 2017


Based on the Wellness policy approved by the BOE during the 2016 -17 school year, and action plan was developed to work on: Nutrition Education, Food sold in school, Physical Activity, Integrated Wellness


Nutrition Education: In 2016-17 the Nest focused on complying with the smart snacks in schools requirements.  The FACS teacher used the smart snack calculators to analyze foods and made changes to recipes.  Grain products were analyzed and changes made to recipes to enable meals served to be compliant. Where possible processed foods used in the FACS classes were smart snack compliant. JH and HS students in FACS classes were educated on ‘my plate’ and ‘smart snacks’. 


Food Sold in School: Concession stand opening times were adjusted, with them not opening till after 4:10pm to be in compliance.  Vending machine products were analyzed and smart snack compliant products purchased.  Fundraisers were either compliant with the smart snack requirements, or exempted as allowed under the legislation. JH and HS students were able to purchase a Breakfast in a Bag during the 2016 -17 school year.


Physical Activity: 7th grade PE was implemented in 2016 -17 school year. 8th grade PE will be implemented in 2017-18 school year.  Physical assessments were completed for at least 50% of PE students.


Integrated Wellness: the nurse posted regular information on the school website regarding health education. Power panther or similar program information was provided to elementary students families.  The Body Venture exhibit was cancelled due to weather.
