Food and Fun

  • Kids should get vigorous activity (that make them breathe hard or sweat) at least 3 times a week.
  • Vigorous activities build strength and endurance and are good for the heart and bones.
  • Be a good role model and make time for vigorous physical activity.

Sign In/Out Policy

All children must be signed in and out, daily, with parent initials and time. This is a Kansas State Health Department regulation. Staff will follow up, if parents do not sign their children out, with a phone call to verify pick-up. Children are not allowed to sign themselves in/out without a parent.

    Getting Healthy Information

    We know that kids who eat healthier and move more perform better in school. It's not just because teachers and administrators tell us so. Research shows that healthy kids get better grades, attend school more often and behave better in class.

    Experts recommend that kids get 60 minutes of physical activity every day. These minutes can come before, during, or after school as long as kids are staying active and having fun!


    Just want to remind everyone that we are unable to offer care on snow days!
