Local Wellness Policy
The Local Wellness Policy (LWP) for MLKECA is to reinforce our commitment to creating a healthy school environment that is meant to enhance the development of wellness practices that will become foundations for lifelong application of healthy eating and physical activity that supports the student achievement. These practices are implemented through nutrition education, nutrition standards, physical education and, physical activity opportunities.
Maintenance and measurement of these standards are made through our School Improvement Team (SIT) that can apply and gage how well said policy is working and making sure it is being enforced. Our SIT is composed of administrative staff, counseling and psychological services staff, food service team, and physical education teacher. This also includes input from teachers, parents, and students.
The intention of this policy to create not only a healthy school environment but also a conscious, happy, and healthy student body as well – together.
