OUR WELLNESS PROGRAM

Here at West York Area School District, as stated in our Student Wellness policy, we believe that healthy bodies create healthy minds.

 

We invite you to review our Wellness policy and send feedback to Scott Rutkowski at scrutkowski@wyasd.k12.pa.us.

 

The Wellness Committee is dedicated to serving our district and welcomes participation from our parents, students and community members.  Our Wellness Committee meetings offer a time for all stakeholders to participate in the development, review, update and implementation of our Student Wellness Policy.  Wellness Committee meeting dates and times our posted on our District Events Calendar and are also announced on the Home Page of this website.
