September 20, 2017 is. In 2007, 23,000 people went to the emergency room because of injuries related to backpacks and book bags. It is reported that 55 percent of students carry a backpack heavier than the recommended guideline of 15 percent of the child’s body weight. On September 20th, Swanton Elementary School will be sending home a backpack safety flyer to raise awareness of the proper way to wear backpacks. For more information on how backpack safety can help you or your family, visit the National School Backpack Awareness Day Web site at www.aota.org/backpack.
The purpose of this procedure is to establish consistent practices for the Franklin Northwest Supervisory Union (FNWSU) to provide meals to students who have insufficient funds in their school meal accounts and the collection of unpaid meal debt.
II. GENERAL STATEMENT
The FNWSU recognizes proper nutrition is essential for adequate learning to occur and to establish lifelong, healthy eating habits while also working to maintain the financial integrity of the school food service program.
