Nutrition & Wellness

Skokie School District 73.5 in conjunction with OrganicLife offers daily hot lunch in each of our three schools. Providing healthy meals to students is very important to Skokie School District 73.5. The district participates in the USDA sponsored Nation School Lunch Program and all meals and snacks served to students meet or exceed the standards required by this program.

Student wellness, both emotional and physical, is a priority for the District. Goals for emotional health, physical activity, and nutrition education are included in the Board Policy 6:50 School Wellness. The District completes a triennial assessment of this policy to determine for each participating school, 1) compliance with the wellness policy, 2) progress made in attaining the goals of the wellness policy, and 3) how the wellness policy compares to model wellness policies. This assessment is submitted to the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) Nutrition Department.
