After review of our LWP via the Wellness Policy Assessment Tool, the following goals have been set for the 22-23 school year: While we have always focused on implementing the required lunch program training for our staff members involved with the National School Lunch Program, our goal this year is to focus on training our entire staff on the importance of modeling healthy behaviors. We will do so by implementing NSLP training into staff meetings 1 - 2 times per year, as well as during our HR training that occurs annually. The main focus being on nutrition and physical activity.
