Health & Nutrition
Henrico County Public Schools believes in offering a comprehensive program that nurtures the overall mental, physical and emotional health of each student. Through nutritious meals, healthy lifestyles, and exercise, Henrico Schools is dedicated to guiding students toward health and success in the 21st century.
"A coordinated school health program (CSHP) model consists of eight interactive components. Schools by themselves cannot - and should not be expected to solve the nation's most serious health and social problems. Families, health care workers, the media, religious organizations, community organizations that serve youth, and young people themselves also must be systematically involved. However, schools could provide a critical facility in which many agencies might work together to maintain the well-being of young people."
