Wellness Policy

Wellness Policy

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

One of our goals is to share the message of nutrition and wellness through 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.


Birthday Recognition

To provide a safe, consistent learning environment for all our children, no edible forms of treats for birthday recognition will be accepted from an outside source.

A birthday bag may be purchased from the PSD Food Services Department for $20 per class OR $30 per class.  The order form is below.  Orders must be received at least one (1) week prior to delivery date.  On the special day, your child's birthday bag will be delivered directly to his/her classroom.  No hassle.  No stress.   

NOTICE:  due to Covid-19, all birthday recognitions have been suspended for the 2020-2021 school year.
