Wellness Committee

The Oyster River Cooperative School District (ORCSD) is committed to providing school environments that promote and protect children’s health, well being, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity. Therefore, it is the policy of the Oyster River Cooperative School District to:

            Engage students, parents, teachers, food service professionals, health professionals, and other interested community members in developing, implementing, monitoring, and reviewing district wide nutrition and physical activity policies

      Provide all students in grades K-12 opportunities, support, and encouragement to be physically active on a regular basis

            Ensure that foods and beverages sold or served to students by ORCSD will meet the nutritionrecommendations of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans

           Ensure that qualified child nutrition professionals provide students with access to a variety of affordable, nutritious, and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.  Further, ORCSD will accommodate the health, religious, ethnic, and cultural diversity of the student body in meal planning; and will provide clean, safe, and pleasant settings and adequate time for students to eat

         Participate in the available federal school meal programs, to the maximum extent possible, including the School Breakfast Program, National School Lunch Program and other related programs

           Provide nutrition education and physical education to foster lifelong habits of healthy eating and physical activity; and to establish linkages between health education, school meal programs, and related community services.
