Wellness Policy

Our District has developed a Wellness Policy that is focused on improving the health of students. The policy was developed by the health and wellness advisory council that includes teachers, parents, administrators, and the district nurse.

One of our goals is to share the message of nutrition and wellness via our department's website that emphasizes the importance of nutrition AND fitness. Our site provides information on the nutrition and fitness for teachers, parents, and students, as well as, a variety of learning tools.

Key Areas of our Wellness Policy

Balance is essential for any Wellness Policy. Key areas include:

  • Nutrition Education

  • Physical activity

  • Other school-based activities that are designed to promote student wellness.

Upcoming Meeting: April 26, 2021 @ 2:00 P.M. Central Office (J.H. Wells Center)

To join our Wellness Committee, contact Chynna Silvernale at 229-588-2340 or by email: cwilson@brooks.k12.ga.us

Why a Wellness Policy?

Local wellness policies are an important tool for parents, local educational agencies (LEAs) and school districts in promoting student wellness, preventing and reducing childhood obesity, and providing assurance that school meal nutrition guidelines meet the minimum federal school meal standards.
