NUTRITION / PHYSICAL WELLNESS POLICY
A school wellness policy is a written document that guides a school district’s efforts to establish a school environment which promotes students’ health, well-being, and ability to learn. The federal Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (HHFKA) requires that every school district participating in the National School Lunch Program conduct an assessment of the district’s compliance with the wellness policy as well as progress made in attaining the goals of the wellness policy at least once every 3 years. Results of the most recent assessment are as follows:
March 29, 2017
1. The USD Wellness Policy Committee met to review the distric’t wellness policy, (09.0250). After reviewing the policy, they suggested that some minor changes be made to the existing policy to bring the policy into compliance with new federal regulations. The changes were approved by the USD School Board and the revised policy has been posted on the district’s website.
2. The USD Wellness Policy Committee reviewed Nutrition/Physical Implementation Reports which were submitted by 7 USD schools. The committee is happy to report that our district appears to be compliant with all requirements of the USD Nutrition/Physical Wellness Policy.
If food or beverages are provided, but not sold, to students during the school day, (e.g., in classroom parties, classroom snacks, or other foods given as incentives), efforts shall be made to provide foods and beverages which promote good health.
