On Wednesday, the Maple Run Unified School District school board voted in favor of the adoption of a new wellness policy in St. Albans, Vermont, impacting thousands of students! This new policy brings the district’s wellness policy rating from 33% to an impressive 82% as determined by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC).
Some of highlights of the committee’s improvements include:
Congratulations to RiseVT-Franklin & Grand Isle Counties, a key partner on the wellness committee that designed and advocated for this policy, the American Heart Association – Vermont, and to all volunteers and advocates who are working to make each day healthier for all children!
