If you are unable to attend the September 7 CCS school board meeting but would still like to let the board know how important it is that they pass the updated Wellness Policy, you may email them. Below, I have pasted sample text that you could use to write board members an email. I have also posted the email addresses for all board members.
If you have any questions, you may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sample Email Text to the School Board
Dear School Board Member,
Please vote to pass the updated Wellness Policy at the school board meeting on September 7.
Parents and children in our school district should be informed that students will be weighed during PE class and that they have a right to opt out.
Taking away recess should not be used as punishment. Numerous organizations, including the US National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Pediatrics, have released studies emphasizing the crucial importance of physical activity in our students’ academic, physical, and social development.
Please communicate the updated Wellness Policy in a way that will ensure all parents, teachers, and administrators are aware of these changes.
Thank you for your support of our students.
