At Richfield Public Schools, we want to help students and families stay healthy. Our goal is to promote healthy habits that support learning. Research suggests that when children eat healthy foods and are physically active they have better academic outcomes such as:
- Better focus in the classroom
- Increased attendance
- Higher grades and test scores
- Increased graduation rates
We are committed to developing lifelong wellness habits in our students. We promote and support student wellness as a goal and good nutrition, regular physical activity and social-emotional wellbeing as part of the total learning environment. Our wellness policy will help:
- improve academic outcomes by supporting/promoting wellness in schools, including healthy eating and physical activity.
- increase student and staff awareness about healthy choices.
- provide guidance and consistency across schools in the district.
