Healthy Schools

Healthy Schools in Jeffco

Jeffco Public Schools' mission is to support school culture, policy and environments that promote healthy lifestyle choices, life skills and attitudes that benefit students, families and staff.

A Healthy School is focused on advancing the physical, social-emotional and mental health of students and staff in schools and upholding the District Wellness Policy. Each Healthy School identifies liaisons to set and monitor health and wellness goals for their school. They participate in Healthy Schools programming and are eligible for Healthy Schools funding to support their goals. 

Jeffco District Wellness Policy

Jeffco District’s Wellness Policy

This resource defines what is required by policy and what is best practice to improve health and wellness in PK-12 schools. These topics address federal and state laws, as well as district policies. 

Birthday Celebrations

To support Lasely’s Healthy Schools mission, Jeffco instituted a policy that no birthday party celebrations may include food in order to limit exposure to life-threatening allergens, increase equity related to food sharing and protect family decision-making around foods consumed. 

At Lasley, student birthdays are recognized by receiving a personalized birthday card from Ms. LeMarinel. In an effort to avoid hurt feelings from students, please do not distribute birthday party invitations at school. Please send them through the mail.

Holiday Parties

Lasley students may have class party celebrations. According to Jeffco policy, at least half of the foods provided to students during holiday celebrations will include healthy choices.
