Wellness Policy

Wellness Policy

Our District has developed a Wellness Policy that is focused on improving the health of students. The policy was developed by the health and wellness advisory council that includes teachers, parents, administrators, and the district nurse.

Sharing the Message of Wellness

One of our goals is to share the message of nutrition and wellness via our department's Web site that emphasizes the importance of nutrition AND fitness. Our site provides information on the nutrition and fitness for teachers, parents, and students, as well as, a variety of learning tools.

Key Areas of our Wellness Policy

Balance is essential for any Wellness Policy. Key areas include:

  • Nutrition Education
  • Physical activity
  • Other school-based activities that are designed to promote student wellness.

Would you be interested in being a part of the USD 263 School Wellness Committee?

We believe we have a responsibility to improve the health and well-being of our children. Experience shows that schools can be powerful places to initiate behavioral and environmental changes for students and staff. Mulvane USD 263 has a School Wellness Committee that meets at least 2 times each year to focus on a district wide school wellness plan.

The purpose of the committee is to bring together representatives from the school and community who can help address issues facing the health and well-being of our children. If you have interest in being a part of the School Wellness Committee please call the school district office for more information @ 316-777-1102. We would be honored to have you as a School Wellness Committee member.
