Wellness Policy

All Catholic Schools are committed to providing a school environment that promotes and protects our children’s health, well-being, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity. Therefore, it is the policy of the Archdiocese of Detroit that all students in grades K-12 have opportunities, support, and encouragement to be physically active on a regular basis. Each student attends physical education class once a week. The physical education program at St. Patrick exposes students to a variety of lifelong activities. Students are taught the benefits of living a healthy active lifestyle. Along with teaching game and skill concepts, students learn cooperation and sportsmanship through team building lessons. The students are also taught proper character traits that will stay with them well into adulthood.

In addition:

  • Parents are encouraged to provide a healthy breakfast each day, and if packing a lunch for their children to provide only healthy choices from each food group.
  • Cassel’s Restaurant provides a hot lunch program for the school that meets all USDA the nutrition recommendations of the USDA for school lunches, and delivers fresh, healthy foods that students enjoy.
  • Cafeteria workers are trained in food service handling and abide by the local health code policies.
  • Teachers promote hand washing or hand sanitizing frequently throughout the day.
  • The school provides a safe, clean, and pleasant setting and adequate time for students to eat.
  • The school schedules appropriate lunch periods followed by outdoor recess whenever possible. Playgrounds are monitored by adults and checked for safety.
  • The school accommodates the tooth-brushing regimens of students with special oral health needs such as orthodontics or high tooth decay risks.
  • The school accommodates the needs of children with food allergies by providing separate dining areas that are constantly monitored for exposure to known allergens.
  • The school has no soda or candy vending machines on the premises.
