Wellness Policy

Wellness Policy Agreement

Dollahan Elementary School recognizes the link between student health and learning, and desires to provide a program promoting healthy eating and physical activity for all students. In order to comply with new state laws, nutrition guidelines have been adopted by the district for all foods available on campus during the school day, with the objectives of promoting student health and reducing childhood obesity.

School staff shall encourage parents/guardians or other volunteers to support the district’s nutrition education program by considering nutritional quality when selecting any snacks which they may donate and by limiting foods or beverages that do not meet nutritional standards.

With these required changes, we believe that we are developing a better nutrition/wellness program for our students and sending them a consistent message that proper health and nutrition are an important part of their education. Additionally, we understand the need of children to celebrate their birthdays and other important events with their classmates. We have identified some healthy alternatives, as sweets and other similar items including cupcakes or candy will NOT be permitted.  You are welcome to donate a book to your child’s class that all children can enjoy; you can send small goodie bags filled with school supplies; or you may still provide an edible treat so long as it meets district nutritional guidelines.

WELLNESS POLICY AGREEMENT

Snacks at School

Students may bring a healthy snack, such as a piece of fruit or vegetables to be eaten in class if given permission by the teacher.  Students should not share food from home with other students as there may be unknown allergies that can result in an emergency medical situation. 

To remain in compliance with the districts health and wellness policy, and state law, students are not allowed caffeinated beverages during lunch, even if brought from home.  Additionally, large bags of chips are not a source of nutrition and will be confiscated if greater than 2.5 oz.  Students may claim these items from the front office at the conclusion of the day.  Gum is not allowed at school.  We ask for parent/guardian support by not sending students to school with these items and for encouraging healthy food choices for our students.
