Sharing the Message of Wellness

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand. The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn.
We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices. We also provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
Our website,,  provides information on the nutrition and fitness for teachers, parents, and students, as well as, a variety of learning tools. We promote and emphasize positive lifelong health, personal fitness, safety and nutritional practices for all enrolled students and staff.
