WCS 2022-23 Annual Wellness Report

Wood County Schools are committed to the well being of both staff and students.  Students who are active and well-nourished are better learners! Wood County Schools partners with staff, parents, students, and community to prepare students to make healthy choices for themselves.

WCS Wellness Policy is comprehensive and includes standards for daily physical activity and nutritious foods. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 requires all school districts to adopt a wellness policy, assess implementation, and share updates with the community.

Policy 5139 is our district’s wellness policy and guides our school district’s efforts to establish a school environment that promotes students’ health, well-being, and ability to learn.
