Improved health optimizes student performance. The Oelwein Community School District (OCSD) supports a healthy environment where students learn and participate in good nutrition and regular physical activity as a part of the total learning environment.

The school district provides a comprehensive learning environment for developing and practicing lifelong wellness behaviors. The entire school environment, not just the classroom, shall be aligned with school district wellness goals to positively influence a student’s understanding, beliefs and habits as they relate to good nutrition and regular physical activity.

Your school nurse, county health nurse and doctor are excellent sources for information and guidance.
