Student Wellness Policy/Wellness Plan (All Grade Levels)
Friona ISD is committed to encouraging healthy students and therefore has developed a board-adopted wellness policy at FFA(LOCAL) and corresponding plans and procedures to implement the policy. You are encouraged to contact the assistant principal with questions about the content or implementation of the district’s wellness policy and plan.
Annually, the district will conduct a physical fitness assessment of students in grades 3–12 who are enrolled in a physical education course or a course for which physical education credit is awarded. At the end of the school year, a parent may submit a written request to athletic director at the high school to obtain the results of his or her child’s physical fitness assessment conducted during the school year.
The district has adopted and implemented the state and federal policies and guidelines for food service, including the guidelines to restrict student access to vending machines. For more information regarding these policies and guidelines, see the principal. [See policies at CO and FFA.]
