Wellness Policy
 
The Manson NW Webster School Board promotes healthy students by supporting wellness, good nutrition and regular physical activity as part of the total learning environment. The Manson NW Webster School District supports a healthy environment where students learn and participate in positive dietary and lifestyle practices. By facilitating learning through the support and promotion of good nutrition and physical activity, schools contribute to the basic health status of the students. Improved health optimizes student performance potential.

The Manson NW Webster School District provides a comprehensive learning environment for developing and practicing lifelong wellness behaviors. The entire school environment, not just the classroom, shall be aligned with healthy school goals to positively influence a student's understanding, beliefs, and habits as they relate to good nutrition and regular activity.

The Manson NW Webster School District supports and promotes proper dietary habits that contribute to students' health status and academic performance. All foods available on school grounds and at school sponsored activities during the instructional school day will meet or exceed the school district nutrition standards and be in compliance with State and Federal laws. Foods should be served with consideration toward nutritional integrity, variety, appeal, taste, safety and packaging to ensure high-quality meals.

The Manson NW Webster School District will make every effort to eliminate any social media stigma attached to, and prevent the overt identification of, students who are eligible for free and reduced-price meals. Toward this end, the school district may utilize electronic identification and payment systems. 

The Manson NW Webster School District will develop a local wellness policy committee comprised of representatives of the board, parents, leaders in food/excercise authority and employees. The local wellness policy committee will develop a plan to implement and measure the local wellness policy and monitor the effectiveness of the policy. The committee will designate an individual to monitor implementation and evaluate the implementation of the policy. The committee will report annually to the board regarding the effectiveness of this policy.
