Wellness Policy     

 

Our Lady of the Visitation School will implement the physical education and health objectives relating to diet, nutrition, fitness and exercise as stated in the most current editions of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Graded Course of Study. 

 Recess, snack breaks, and school lunch periods will be scheduled in relation to the nutritional and physical needs of the students.   

The school lunch program will follow the nutritional guidelines established by the USDA and procedures for reimbursement for school lunches will be followed.   

Parents are encouraged to send healthy snacks and lunches to school with their children. Information about nutrition and healthy physical activity is available to parents and teachers through our school nurse.   

Parents, teachers, staff and Education Commission offered input in the development of this policy. The Wellness Policy will be evaluated every other year starting in 2014-15.
