Wellness Policy

The Tupelo Public School District is working toward a district- wide “No Frying Policy” in our school cafeterias. As of June 4, 2013, there are eleven (11) cafeterias that have already implemented a “No Frying Policy” and are baking all entrees and frozen potatoes. Lawhon School has been awarded Nutrition Integrity Grant for the 2014-15 school year. These grants provide for the purchase of combi ovens that bake and/or steam food products served in the cafeteria that may have been previously fried. These new ovens allow cafeterias to bake products with a crispy outer coating while maintaining a moist inside texture. As part of the grant requirements, these school cafeterias have committed to removing their deep fat fryers and having a “No Frying Policy” at both of these cafeterias. We are looking forward to having these ovens installed during the fall of 2014. It is the goal of our Child Nutrition Department to offer the best quality foods that meet or exceed the healthy and food-safe requirements of the federal school meal programs.

Balance is essential for any Wellness Policy. Key areas include:

  • Nutrition Education
  • Physical activity
  • Other school-based activities that are designed to promote student wellness.
