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.

A statement from our District Nurse, Belinda Stivers:

Welcome to School Health Services!!

I have the unique opportunity as a registered nurse to practice school nursing in the school community that I love! This school year marks my twentieth year as the school nurse at Eminence Independent Schools. It continues to be such a rewarding experience to be a part of a school community that values school nursing and makes health and wellness a priority.

Please feel free to contact me anytime you need assistance or if you need information in an alternate format.

 

Eminence Independent Schools are participating in the Alliance for a Healthier Generation’s Healthy Schools Program. We will be working with the Alliance to transform our school into an environment where students eat healthier and move more.

If you have any questions or suggestions about our participation in the initiative or would like to get involved with our team, please contact me.

Thanks for making Eminence Independent Schools a healthier place for students to live, learn and grow!
