Thus, Our Lady of Victory School is committed to providing a school environment that promotes and protects children’s health, well-being, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity. Therefore, it is the policy of Our Lady of Victory School that:
Our Lady of Victory School will participate in the School Breakfast Program and the National School Lunch Program and encourage student participation.
1. School Health
Our Lady of Victory School will work to develop, implement, monitor, review, and as necessary revise our school nutrition and physical activity procedures. Those involved with this process will include school administrator, teachers, students, parents, head cook, school nurse, and Board of Education members.
2. Nutritional Quality of Foods and Beverages Served
Meals served through the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs will:
Free and Reduced-priced Meals: OLV School will prevent the overt identification of students who are eligible for free and reduced-priced meals.
Meal Times and Scheduling: OLV School will
Qualifications of School Food Service Staff: OLV School will provide opportunities for staff development programs to include appropriate certification and/or training for school cafeteria managers, and cafeteria workers, according to their levels of responsibility.
Sharing of Foods and Beverages: OLV School will discourage students from sharing their foods or beverages with one another during meal or snack time given concerns about allergies and other restrictions on some children’s diets.
Food will not be sold to students through vending machines.
Classroom Snacks: Pop should not be used as a beverage for a classroom party. Candy will not be used as a reward for academic achievement during the instructional day.
Celebrations: Our Lady of Victory School should limit celebrations that involve food during the school day to no more than one party per class per month. Each party should include no more than one food or beverage that contains sugar as its first ingredient. Teachers will send home notes to parents informing them of this snack requirement.
Daily Recess: All elementary school students (K-4) will have at least 20 minutes a day of supervised recess, preferably outdoors, during which students will be encouraged both verbally and through the provision of space and equipment to participate in moderate to vigorous physical activity.
