Student Wellness

Student health and wellness are a priority to St. Francis Borgia Catholic School.

St. Francis Borgia Catholic School works to promote healthy students by supporting wellness, good nutrition, and regular physical activity as a part of the total learning environment. St. Francis Borgia Catholic School supports a healthy environment where children learn and participate in positive dietary and lifestyle practices. By facilitating learning through the support and promotion of good nutrition and physical activity, St. Francis Borgia Catholic School contributes to the basic health status of children. We believe improved health optimizes student performance potential.

Lunch

For the 2020-21 School Year, St. Francis Borgia Catholic School is not participating in a hot lunch program due to COVID-19 regulations. We have partnered with our local Subway to provide turkey or ham sub sandwiches to students that wish to purchase them. So far our families love this lunch option that is available twice per week.

St. Francis Borgia participates in the Government Special Milk Program.

Health Room

The office and parent volunteers staff the health room for children who become ill during the school day. Temperatures can be taken and ice packs/Band-Aids can be dispensed. Parents must pick up their child if they have a temperature of 100 degrees or more, vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, a suspicious rash or lesions, or any other condition/injury which prevents the student from returning to the classroom.

Recess

Outdoor play is enjoyed by all students. Students in 5K-5th grade participate in a recess PRIOR to lunch, as well as an afternoon recess.  Upper school (6th-8th grade) students have one recess each day after their lunch period. Students well enough to be at school will be required to go outside for recess. If a child is to remain in for a period of time, a doctor’s note is required.

Allergy & Nut Policy

St. Francis Borgia Catholic School works with parents and students with allergies. We work to maintain a peanut and latex controlled environment.
