Building a Healthier Student Body

The Olathe Public Schools, in partnership with families and the community, is committed to providing a healthy school environment that supports student wellbeing and the ability to learn. In June 2006, the Board of Education approved a Nutrition and Wellness policy that puts this commitment into action.
