Wellness Committee

The Quaker Valley School District recognizes that good health and good nutrition affect a student's ability to learn. A thorough health and wellness program contributes to the physical, emotional and social growth of all children.
The board is committed to providing a school environment that promotes student wellness, proper nutrition, nutrition education, and regular physical activity as part of the total learning experience. Students will learn about and participate in dietary and lifestyle practices that are intended to improve student achievement.
To ensure the health and well-being of all students, the board establishes that the district shall provide to students:
  • A comprehensive food service program consistent with federal and slate requirements, including, access to reasonably priced foods and beverages that meet accepted nutritional guidelines.
  • Physical education curriculum and other school day opportunities for developmentally appropriate physical activity.
  • Curriculum and programs for grades K-12 that teach students about proper nutrition and lifelong physical activity, in accordance with State Board of Education curriculum regulations and academic standards.
