Colonial School District Wellness Policy SY23

The Colonial School District has a strong history of promoting wellness among its students. We believe that in order to provide students with opportunities to achieve personal, academic, and developmental success, we need to create positive, safe and health-promoting learning environments in every setting throughout the school year. Colonial will use three-pronged approach (nutrition, health and physical activity, and social-emotional wellbeing) to student wellness that will help eliminate learning barriers associated with improper nutrition, lack of physical activity, and poor mental health.

The wellness initiatives and resources found on this website intend to maintain our school environment that protects and promotes a student’s eating behavior that result in lifelong healthy food choices, encourage regular physical activity, and contribute to positive mental health. Research indicates that proper nutrition and regular engagement in physical activity strongly correlates with higher student performance and lower absenteeism.
