Elkins Elementary School Local Student Wellness PolicyTop of Page
The Elkins Elementary School District recognizes the link between health and learning; therefore we strive to promote the academic, physical, social, and emotional growth and development of all of our students to reduce childhood obesity. To accomplish this goal, the district has implemented a local school wellness program.
Our Wellness Program includes the following elements:
Promotion of a healthy school environment-a safe and nurturing climate where all students are protected from harassment, discrimination, intimidation and bullying and are known by the staff.
Nutritional standards for all food provided in school.
Student services-student counseling and health evaluations from a registered nurse.
The Elkins Elementary School will encourage parents, students and members of the school board as well as the public to participate in the development, review and periodic updates of the Local Wellness Policy.
Meeting dates and times will be posted on our website, school bulletin and by letter.
A copy of the Local Wellness Policy will be included in the Parent Student Handbook given to all families at the beginning of the year and upon enrollment.
