School Wellness Program and Policy
  • Local School Wellness Policy
    The Jones County Board of Education is committed to providing a school environment that enhances learning and development of lifelong wellness practices, including but limited to fostering good eating habits to maintain healthy weight management for a life time.

    A healthy school environment goes beyond school meals in the cafeteria. A healthy lifestyle and maintaining a healthy weight requires a combination of healthy food choices and appropriate amount of physical activity.  All foods made available on school campuses should offer children nutritious choices and physical activity should be incorporated into the school day as often as possible. The healthy, physically active child is more likely to be academically successfu
