Good Nutrition = Great Academics!

Rio’s Wellness Team works to address student health and wellness through program development, implementation, and policy.

Rio School District’s wellness team is committed to providing quality schools in every neighborhood by promoting student achievement, establishing schools as learning centers, supporting effective teaching, engaging parents/community in learning, and facilitating effective communication. The implementation of the Wellness Policy promotes student wellness, proper nutrition, nutrition and health education, physical education, a safe and positive school climate, healthcare and social services, protecting the environment and more.

The federal government has initiated laws that set standards for improved school meals and requires school districts to follow specific criteria in order to create unique wellness policies.

Our Wellness Policy is the document that complies with the federal law. The Wellness Policy incorporates all components of the Coordinated School Health Model and federal mandates.
