Wellness Policy 800.34


The Hitchcock County Schools #44-0070 is committed to provide school environments that protect children’s health, well-being, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity.  There fore, it is the policy of the Hitchcock County Schools that:

 ·         The school district will engage students, parents, teachers, foodservice professionals, health professionals, and other interested community members in developing, implementing, monitoring, and reviewing district wide nutrition and physical activity policies.

 ·         All students in grades K-12 will have opportunities, support, an encouragement to be physically active on a regular basis.

 ·         Foods and beverages sold or served at school will meet the nutrition recommendations of the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

 ·         Qualified child nutrition professionals will provide students with access to a variety of affordable, nutritious, and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students; will accommodate the dietary requirement, and the religious, ethnic, and cultural diversity of the student body in meal planning; and will provide clean, safe, and pleasant settings and adequate time for students to eat.

 ·         To the maximum extent practicable, all schools in our district will participate in available federal school meal programs (including the School Breakfast Program, and the National School Lunch Program).

 ·         Schools will provide nutrition education and physical education to foster lifelong habits of healthy eating and physical activity, and will establish linkages between health education and food choice that promote a healthy lifestyle.

                 *offer a variety of fruits and vegetables; to the extent possible, schools will offer at least two non-fried vegetable and two fruit options each day and will offer five different fruits and five different vegetables over the course of a week.  Schools are encouraged to source fresh fruits and vegetables from local farmers when practicable.

                   *serve only low-fat (1%) and fat free milk and nutritionally-equivalent non-dairy alternatives (to be defined by USDA); and

                 *ensure that half of the served grains are whole grain.

 Free and Reduced-price Meals

             *  Schools will make every effort of eliminate any social stigma attached to and prevent the overt identification of students who are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals; will meet the Federal Household Income Qualification guidelines.

    b.      Physical Activity

 Physical education and physical activity shall be an essential element of each schools instructional program.  The program shall provide the opportunity for all students to develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to participate in a lifetime of healthful physical activity.

             *Students shall be provided varied opportunities for enjoyment, challenge, self expression and social interaction that will lead to a physically active lifestyle.

             *Daily Recess.  All elementary school students will have at least 20 minutes a day of supervised recess, preferably outdoors, during which schools should encourage moderate to vigorous physical activity verbally and through the provision of space and equipment.

     c.      Other School Activity
