Health & Wellness at the CBE

At the CBE, we believe in a whole school approach to health and wellness. We call this our Comprehensive School Health (CSH) approach. CSH is about healthy eating, active living, supportive social environments and positive mental health. As a system, we focus on the following four areas: healthy eating; healthy relationships; physical activity; and positive mental health. Each school creates its own approach and goals for health and wellness.

Health & Wellness

Healthy, Active Learners

All children in Grades K - 4 will participate in daily Phys. Ed. to promote a healthy, active lifestyle.

Students in Grades K – 4 participate in daily Physical Education activities that will be both inside and outside, regardless of the month. In addition, students will go outside everyday (unless it is down-pouring rain, blizzarding snow, or temperatures are colder than -20 degrees Celcius for morning and afternoon recess or on community walks and explorations. 

Students are encouraged to bring only healthy/brain-food snacks to school, in accordance with CBE Administrative Regulation 3047 - Nutrition.  They should have a water bottle for snack time and for sipping on throughout the day to hydrate. Snacks need to be portable (hold in one hand), and as healthy and litterless as possible. 

Allergies

Northern Lights School is an ‘Allergy Aware’ school.  In each classroom, a sign will be posted for inform about any severe allergies that are present in that classroom, allergy alert stop signs will be posted on individual desks, and Epi-Pen signs will hang above backpacks to indicate where emergency medications are contained. We educate all students and staff on how to keep their hands and work surfaces clean of allergens, and offer options for where students with allergens can eat if their parents so choose.  Although we do not ban any food items from the school, many families consider sending alternative food options for their child if a severe allergy to a certain food exists in their homeroom class.
