District Wellness Council
The Rush-Henrietta Central School District convenes a representative District Wellness Council that meets at least four times per year to establish goals for and oversee school health and safety plans and programs. Council membership represents all school levels (elementary and secondary schools) and includes, but is not limited to, school nurse teachers, nurse practitioner, director of wellness and equity, food service director, health education teachers, physical education teachers, administrators, school board members, other allied health/community personnel, parents/guardians, and students. For more information, contact Nerlande Anselme, assistant superintendent for student and family services, at 359-5018 or email@example.com.
At the December 8, 2020 committee meeting, representatives from the Wegmans School of Health and Nutrition at RIT presented information about a lifestyle program they are implementing called ELM. This program is geared toward people who exhibit signs of metabolic syndrome and are interested in taking steps to improve their health and reduce their risk of heart disease and diabetes. Participants in the program must be at least 18 years old and will receive $40 per session. The program is free, and the groups are conducted at the Henrietta Recreation Center.
