Wellness Policy

Our District has developed a Wellness Policy that is focused on improving the health of students.  The policy was developed by the School Wellness Advisory Council that includes teachers, parents, administrators and the district nurse.

Balance is essential for any Wellness Policy. Key areas include:

                    • Nutrition Education
                    • Physical activity
                    • Other school-based activities that are designed to promote student wellness.

 

One of our goals is to share the message of nutrition and wellness via our department's website, which emphasizes the importance of nutrition AND fitness.  Our site provides information on nutrition and fitness for teachers, parents, and students, as well as a variety of learning tools.  In addition, if you are a student, parent, staff or faculty member, or partnering community organization and are interested in serving as a representative on the School Wellness Advisory Council, please contact Julie Clark at [email protected] or 707-464-0214.

 

School Wellness Advisory Council Meeting Minutes 10/27/2021

 

The District has re-engaged our School Wellness Advisory Council (SWAC).  This school year our initial goals will be to re-engage the SWAC and to complete the required triennial assessment of our current School Wellness Plan.  The purpose of this triennial assessment is to ensure that our School Wellness Plan meets and/or exceeds the requirements, along with ensuring stakeholder engagement, transparency and measurements of implementation. 

Parents, students, community members and organizations are invited to participate alongside teachers, administrators, school health professionals and School Board members.  We are looking for members of the Del Norte community who would like to become a part of our School Wellness Advisory Council.
