8510 - Wellness Policy
The Elgin Local Schools Board of Education recognizes that good nutrition and regular physical activity affect the health and wellness of all students. Research suggests that there is a positive correlation between a student's health and well being and his/her ability to learn. Furthermore, we believe that schools can and must play an important part in aiding students to establish their health and nutrition habits by providing nutritious meals and snacks, supporting the positive development of good eating habits, and promoting increased physical activity both in and out of the school setting.
