Re: School Wellness


Lexington Public School District Community Stakeholders,

Our district strives to ensure that all children are supervised, safe, well taught, supported, engaged, and challenged during their time with us during each school day.

Research indicates that reducing childhood obesity, preventing bullying, supporting students’ mental health needs, and restricting schools’ use of exclusionary discipline have been found to improve student success in school. The district has a wellness committee that meets regularly to address student needs, adjust policy provisions, and setting, tracking, and evaluating progress toward established wellness goals pursuant to USDA requirements. The wellness policy can be found here, and the results of our wellness policy assessment can be found here.

Feel free to contact wellness committee coordinator Marni Baker at 308.324.1210.
