Enforce the rule and tell RCSD leadership they NEED to prioritize the health and well being of our kids.

The time to move is now, the pandemic has compounded toxic stress for children in our community. Consistent toxic stress in childhood caused by poverty, adverse childhood experiences (ACES), and racism can significantly alter overall brain structure and function in children and negatively impacts their overall health and wellbeing in the future. Families across the district have expressed concern over the impact COVID-19 will have and has had on their children’s mental health and wellbeing, and their overall ability to rebound from yet another trauma without adequate support.

The need to invest and prioritize health and wellness of our students has never been greater. The district wellness policy sets the roadmap for the overall goals, requirements, and should provide accountability for the district to advance a healthy and safe environment for all students.
