Health and Wellness

Great school communities start with safe and healthy students engaged in joyful learning. We work to ensure that schools and families have the appropriate supports and resources to keep each child healthy and happy. 

Sleep and Exercise

The most prevalent health problems associated with low academic achievement in students is lack of sleep and exercise. Most children need at least nine hours of restful sleep each night. Physical activity has been proven to help children develop social skills, improve mental health, avoid obesity, and inhibit risk-taking behaviors. 

Nurses and Health Assistants

All schools have a health assistant or registered nurse available to address any health issues that may arise with our students and to work with our families so our students are healthy and ready to learn.

The outbreak of COVID-19 may be stressful for people and communities. Fear and anxiety about a disease can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. These articles for adults will be helpful for parents, guardians, and families as they manage through this unprecedented situation.

Some ways to provide support to children regarding COVID-19 include:

  • Limiting your child’s exposure to COVID-19 media coverage;
  • Providing a calming influence to your child - remember that children look to adults to understand how to respond to the situations around them; and
  • Helping children address their fears by using some of the resources and guidance below.
