Catch The Health Wave


In response to growing national concerns about the health of our youth and recent legislation requiring all school districts to create a Wellness Policy on Nutrition and Physical activity, the Narragansett Schools Health and Safety Sub Committee has developed a district-wide policy governing Nutrition and Physical Activity in the schools. This policy, already approved by the School Committee, will go into effect for the 2005-2006 school year and is available for your review on the link to the left. Additional school nutrition and physical activity information will be available in school newsletters, on school bulletin boards, through your PTO and on this web site. Our goal is to assist parents, students, and staff by promoting healthy eating and physical activity in each school. Helping students develop these healthy habits now will benefit them for life. Plus, healthy students are healthy learners who perform better in school. So stay tuned!
