Nebraska Healthy Schools Program Recognizes 38 Award Winning Schools
Healthy Children Learn Better
On October 20, 2020 the Nebraska Healthy Schools Program recognized 38 Award Winning Schools who prioritize the health and well-being of schools across Nebraska. The Nebraska Department of Education, Nebraska Healthy Schools Program has recognized for their exemplary efforts in promoting and supporting healthy school environments.
“At no other time in our recent history has the health and well-being of our school communities been more critical for student success than it is today. The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the need for communities, schools, and families to work together to ensure that children’s physical, social-emotional, and mental health needs are being met. We would like to take this opportunity to recognize schools that prioritize the education of the whole child, working to support students to ensure they are healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged,” said Jessie Coffey, Registered Dietitian and Whole Child Coordinator at the Nebraska Department of Education.
