While student health and well being is a shared responsibility between schools and families, the school environment must be conducive to and promote learning. In order to ensure the learning environment supports students’ nutrition, physical fitness and well-being, and in order to promote family and community involvement to this end, the Superintendent shall:

  • Ensure that district health and physical fitness curriculum is consistent with Washington State Health and Physical Education K-12 Learning Standards.
  • Ensure that the offerings of the School Lunch and Breakfast Program comply with federal guidelines.
  • Ensure that sale of foods during the school day comply with federal guidelines.
  • Develop guidelines for foods provided (not sold) to students through classroom parties/school events, rewards, and/or incentives.
  • Promote partnerships with parents and parent groups to support life long nutrition, physical fitness and wellness.
  • Provide information and materials that promote healthy eating habits and appropriate physical activity.
  • Promote appropriate physical activity for students by:
    • Ensuring aerobic physical activity is part of physical education classes,
    • Providing elementary school students with daily, supervised recess periods,
    • Providing co-curricular physical activity and intramural programs, and
    • Promoting the use of school facilities for physical activity programs offered by outside organizations.
