  • All employees, substitute teachers, and independent contractors
  • Any volunteer who accompanies students off campus (i.e., chaperones for field trips).

Wellness Policy 

The purpose of the School Wellness policy to promote school wellness, reduce childhood obesity, and ensure that school meals and other food and beverages sold and otherwise made available on the school campus during the school day are consistent with the applicable local, state, and federal standards.

Wellness Committee

Gentry Academy created a Wellness Committee that is committed to the health and wellness of its students, teachers, and staff. The committee will work together to meet four times each year to discuss and plan how schools can further follow the wellness policy and in turn accomplish its goal of ensuring a school environment that promotes and protects students’ health, well-being and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity.

Student-athletes participating in the Minnesota state high school league for an elected sport are restricted from development with their coach in that elected sport during the off-season.
