What are schools doing to ensure students have nutritious meals and CDC recommended exercise?
We have physical education teachers in middle and high school, but unfortunately our budget does not allow for physical education teachers at the elementary level. Individual schools and teachers often integrate exercise into the curriculum and use volunteers to help provide this as well. Additionally, the Ed Alliance holds the Run for Education every year, which raises funds for physical education at schools. WCSD follows all federal requirements around nutrition in school meals and our Nutrition Services Department strives to provide healthy and balanced meals for our students.
