New Wellness Policy Approved

On Wednesday, March 9, the Centennial School Board approved a new wellness policy created by the district's Wellness Committee.  Some policy highlights are:
  • school meal programs will be designed to feature fruits, vegetables and other healthy foods from local sources to the greatest extent possible
  • Fundraising efforts will be supportive of healthy eating
  • Food should not be used as discipline or motivation in class (can be used as part of a celebration, if it includes healthy choices)
  • at least 50% of PE time be devoted to physical activity
  • staff will not use physical activity (running laps, pushups) as punishment
  • schools will have access to free clean and safe drinking water at all facilities
