wellness in District 65
As part of the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004, school districts that participate in the National School Lunch and/or School Breakfast Program are required to have a local wellness policy that promotes student health and addresses concerns about childhood obesity. In 2019, the School Board approved an updated wellness policy (School Board Policy 6:50
) that is intended to create a healthier school environment via improved nutrition education, healthier food services, and improved physical activity offerings.
The Wellness Council is responsible for promoting health and wellness across District 65. All educators, support staff members, administrators, parents/caregivers, and community members wanting to work together to build something great for our school community are invited to participate! Meeting dates are as follows:
October 20, 2020
December 15, 2020
February 23, 2021
April 20, 2021
All meetings will be held from 3:40 - 4:30 pm
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all meetings will be held virtually.
