AUSD Wellness Policy

It's that time of year again to remind families and students of celebrations and rewards in regard to our AUSD Wellness Policy, which is also listed on our website under the heading School Info.
See below on page 11 of the Wellness Policy
Celebrations and Rewards
All foods offered on the school campus will meet or exceed the USDA Smart Snacks in School nutrition standards including through:
  • Celebrations and parties. The district will provide a list of healthy party ideas to parents and teachers, including non-food celebration ideas. Healthy party ideas are available from the Alliance for a Healthier Generation and from the USDA.
  • Classroom snacks brought by parents. The district will provide to parents a list of foods and beverages that meet Smart Snacks nutrition standards.
  • Rewards and incentives. The district will provide teachers and other relevant school staff a list of alternative ways to reward children. Foods and beverages will not be used as a reward, or withheld as punishment for any reason, such as for performance or behavior.
