• Balance is essential for any Wellness Policy. Key components of a policy include:

    • Nutrition Standards for foods sold in schools;
    • Nutrition Education and Promotion;
    • Family and Community Involvement;
    • Physical Activity; and
    • Other school-based activities designed to promote student wellness.

    The Nutrition and Physical Activity Advisory Committee convened in 2014 to review the district policy and recommend changes to the School Board.  The committee meets on a biannual basis to ensure the policy is accurate and encompassing of all district activities.  Community members interested in being involved in the committee should contact the Food Service Department at 360-855-3515.

    The most recent version of the policy was approved by the Sedro-Woolley School Board in June 2018.
