The Douglas Unified School District Wellness Policy meets the Federal mandate PL 108-265 and the ASBA Policy JL-RB & JL-RA, Student Wellness, and Policy EFE, Competitive Food Sales/Vending Machines. The purpose of the Wellness Policy is to provide school environments that promote and protect children’s health, well-being, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity. The Food Service Operation provides breakfast and lunch in accordance with the National School Lunch Program and the Arizona Nutrition Standards. Rewards and incentives should be given careful consideration and food is not to be used as a punishment. Similarly if food is included in recognition of academic performance, it should be used in the general celebration of the achievement and not as a reward. Nutrition education is to be offered to all students and school counselors are to be prepared to recognize conditions such as obesity and eating disorders and be able to refer them to the appropriate services. Recess is encouraged to be offered prior to lunch. Schools should provide adequate physical activity for students and ensure that students are moderately to vigorously active at least 50% of the time while participating in physical education.
