2018 Wellness Policy Update

The Appleton Area School District continues to update practices that provide our students with a safe and welcoming environment through culturally and linguistically responsive practices. As we continue our efforts through updated continuous school improvement practices, it is our responsibility to ensure that we are focusing on the whole child when making connections among academics, behaviors, and overall student wellness.

As part of these efforts, the AASD School Wellness Policy Committee recently updated School Wellness Policy 458 in order to align our school wellness procedures with best practices. Following Board approval in June, one of the changes being made throughout the District is to focus on honoring students through practices that are not only more aligned to the updated policy, but are practices identified as being best for overall student health and wellness.  

Beginning with the 2018-19 school year, recognition for special occasions (birthdays, holidays, etc.) during the school day (starting at midnight the day before through a half hour after students are dismissed for the day) will not include students bringing in snacks/treats from outside of the District for other students and will instead take place through non-food practices.

  • Recognizing students in ways that support overall student wellness and have a variety of positive benefits:
  • Reduced social and economic pressures on families for providing celebration snacks
  • Increased opportunities for families with respect to birthday celebrations
  • Avoidance of unintended consequences related to food allergies
  • Decreased medical complications triggered by food consumption

Knowing that this is a big change from past practices we understand that part of the process is learning together the many ways we can still honor our students and provide them with opportunities of feeling special without the inclusion of food items.

Thank you for your understanding as we continue to ensure that we are implementing best practices that focus on increased student wellness for Every Child, Every Day in the Appleton Area School District.

We encourage you to read through our frequently asked questions or reach out to your school principal if you have further concerns or questions.

El Distrito Escolar del Area de Appleton continúa poniendo al día los procedimientos que ofrecen a nuestros estudiantes un ambiente seguro, acogedor y sano. Como parte de esos esfuerzos el Comité de Normas de Bienestar Escolar del AASD actualizó recientemente la Norma Escolar de Bienestar 458, con objeto de alinearla con los mejores procedimientos. 

Comenzando al principio del año escolar 2018-19, los cumpleaños y otras celebraciones durante el día escolar no incluirán el que los estudiantes traigan bocadillos/postres de casa para compartir y en su lugar, se observarán actividades sin alimentos:
• Se celebrará a los estudiantes en formas que apoyen mejor el bienestar del estudiante, que tienen una variedad de beneficios positivos.
• Reducción de presiones sociales y económicas en las familias al proporcionar bocadillos de festejo.
• Aumento de conciencia cultural para las familias en lo relacionado a cumpleaños y otros festejos.
• Eliminación de consecuencias no intencionales relativas a alergias alimenticias y reducción de complicaciones para estudiantes con condiciones médicas.

Sabemos que esto es un cambio de actividades anteriores, comprendemos que parte del proceso es aprender juntos las muchas maneras en que podemos honrar y celebrar a nuestros estudiantes sin el agregado de artículos alimenticios.  

Juntos, continuaremos asegurando que estamos implementando los mejores procedimientos que se enfocan en un mayor bienestar estudiantil para todo niño, durante cada día, en el Distrito Escolar del Area de Appleton.

Si se tienen preguntas acerca de esta norma, favor de comunicarse con el Director del plantel.
