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 successful.

    To accomplish the School Wellness Policy goals, the following components will be addressed:
    • Nutrition programs comply with federal, state and local requirements and are accessible to all students.
    • Sequential and interdisciplinary nutrition education is provided and promoted.
    • Patterns of meaningful physical activity connect to students' lives outside of physical education.
    • All school-based activities are consistent will local wellness policy goals.
    • All foods and beverages made available on campus during the school day (including vending, a la carte, student stores) are consistent with the awareness for a healthier lifestyle.
    • All foods made available on campus adhere to food safety and security guidelines.
    • The school environment is safe, comfortable, pleasing, and allows ample time and space for eating meals.
    • Wellness Policy Committee will consist of members representing the local Board of Education, Administration, faculty, nurses, Physical Education/Health faculty, students, parents and community representatives.  This committee will meet-semi-annually.
