Kelliher School Supports the Following Practices as Reflected in the School's Wellness Policy

 

  • Kelliher School does not advertise or market foods and beverages that do not meet the Smart Snacks  criteria to students
  • The school only permits food-related fundraisers that meet USDA's Smart Snack standards, even if the State allows exemptions.
  • If foods and beverages are sold to students on the school campus at events outside of the school day (e.g. sporting events, after-school activities, award ceremonies), then water, fruit, and/or vegetables are also offered and promoted as options.
  • The majority (greater than 50%) of school-sponsored fundraising events conducted outside of the school day includes only non-food items or only foods and beverages that meet or exceed USDA's Smart Snacks in School nutrition standards.
  • Students are allotted a full 30 minutes for school lunches and breakfast.
  •  Physical activity is never used as a direct reward, nor is it denied a student as a punishment.
  • Food is never used as a direct reward, nor is it denied a student as a punishment.
  • Physical activity is a priority and is encouraged through 30 minute recesses, Physical Education every day, and activity breaks every morning and afternoon.
