A healthy school environment goes beyond school meals in the cafeteria. A healthy lifestyle and maintaining a healthy weight requires a combination of healthy food choices and appropriate amount of physical activity. All foods made available on school campuses should offer children nutritious choices, and physical activity should be incorporated into the school day as often as possible. The healthy, physically active child is more likely to be academically successful.
It is the goal of the Wilcox County School District to provide school environments that promote and protect children's health, well-being, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity. The school district recognizes that a coordinated effort by the entire community including child nutrition professionals, school board members, parents, students, school administrators, teachers and community leaders is necessary in order to be successful. For this reason, we encourage you to take an active role.
