child choosing blueberriesFern Ridge School District is committed to the to the health and wellness of all students and staff.  To help ensure students possess the knowledge and skills necessary to make healthy choices for a lifetime, a comprehensive district nutrition program has been prepared and implemented that is consistent with or exceeds state and federal guidelines.  This program reflects the FRSD School Board’s commitment to the wellness of its staff and students.

As a part of this program, a district wellness committee was established several years ago.  The committee reviews the District wellness policy, coordinates staff wellness activities, and provides feedback and suggestions as our district food advisory committee.

The committee includes representatives from administrators, licensed teachers, instructional assistants and parents.  They meet monthly during the school year, with meetings at the beginning and end of the year specific to policy review and food advisory issues.  This committee also plans and promotes district-wide health and wellness opportunities for students and staff as well as ensuring that the wellness program policy is being implemented throughout the district.  If you are a parent who is interested in this serving on this committee, please contact the district office at 541-935-2253 ext 1203.
