Wellness Policy

Local School Wellness Policies aim to promote sound nutrition, student health, reduce childhood obesity, and provide transparency to the public on the school wellness environment. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (HHFKA) requires all sponsors participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and/or School Breakfast Program (SBP) to establish a written Local School Wellness Policy for all schools under its jurisdiction. Sponsor​s have the flexibility to develop Local School Wellness Policies that meet the needs of their students and school community, but must meet the minimum requirements set by USDA.​

The MSD15 Local Wellness policy is reviewed annually by a committee made up of teachers, administrators, school nurses, and community members.
