Summary

Your child spends more time at school than anywhere else except home. Schools can have a major effect on children's health. Schools can teach children about health, and promote healthy behaviors. Physical education classes give children a chance to get exercise.

Schools work to

  • Prevent risky behaviors such as alcohol and tobacco use, or bullying
  • Encourage healthy habits like exercise and healthy eating
  • Deal with specific health problems in students, such as asthma, obesity and infectious diseases

The school building and environment should be a safe and healthy place for your child.
