Healthy Schools and Healthy Students
Healthy schools produce healthy students. Healthy schools and school districts are those that support good nutrition and physical activity as part of a total learning environment.
The Issaquah School District adopted a nutrition policy and has taken steps to increase the nutritional value of school lunches. The District will establish guidelines for foods and beverages sold by the food service program and those sold in vending machines, snack bars, school stores, and school-sponsored fundraising events. Students will have opportunities for physical activity and appropriate exercise and accurate information on nutrition and wellness will be available.
An annual report will be posted each year to share basic information about the wellness policy and evaluate the progress of the schools within the district in meeting wellness goals. Please click here for the most recent report.
