By supporting healthy eating and physical activity, the Longmeadow public schools provides school environments that promote and protect children's health, well-being, and ability to learn. Schools contribute to the basic health of students and staff by facilitating learning through the support and promotion of good nutrition, physical activity, and positive dietary and lifestyle practices. In compliance with recommendations by the Massachusetts departments of Elementary and Secondary Education and Public Health, the Longmeadow School Committee approved a wellness policy in 2006. The policy outlines the district's ongoing commitment in support of wellness in the areas of nutrition, physical activity, and other school-based activities. We believe community participation and parental support is essential to the policy's success.
