Supporting Student Health and Well-being
The health and well-being of our students is one of our school district's most important priorities. The district continues to strive to have a positive impact on the social/emotional learning and mental health of all students, and to educate the community about sleep,nutrition, mindfulness, fitness, and drugs and alcohol. The Challenge Success movement has been a key resource providing national context for the focus on well-being. The district also partners with Corner House and other local organizations in an effort to support best practices to protect our learning environments and students well-being.
