About Staff Wellness
Since 2013, Barry and Lawrence counties have made great strides in building a healthier future for children and families as part of its’ Healthy Schools Healthy Communities (HSHC) grant from Missouri Foundation for Health. The initiative brought together schools, community organizations, businesses, parents, and residents to increase access to healthy food and physical activity where kids live, learn, and play. Staff is no exception. The Monett R-1 School District highly values the health and well-being of every staff member and will plan and implement activities and policies that support personal efforts by staff to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Monett R-1 strives to make a commitment to provide school environments that promote and protect both student and staff health, well-being, and ability to learn. During our HSHC intiative Monett R-1 created and implemented an employee wellness program that encourages you, as staff to act as healthy role models for our students.
Monett R-1 is proud of the healthy changes made possible by the Healthy Schools Healthy Communities grant, and are excited staff will be able to benefit from these improvements for years to come.
