Offer vs. Serve allows for a reimbursable meal to consist of a minimum of 3 items .) Leslie County Elementary Schools Leslie County School District Nutrition and Physical Activity Report Card 2011 Leslie County High/ Middle School The data presented above is a summary from the assessment of our physical activity environment using the CDC School Health Index Module. The assessment is completed and submitted by each school Principal. Intense physical activity programs have positive effects on academic achievement , including increased concentration; improved mathematics, reading, and writing test scores; and reduced disruptive behavior. The Leslie County Schools are dedicated to serving nutritious meals and providing multiple physical activity opportunities as a means of helping our students reach proficiency. Together We Can

  2. National School Lunch The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) was conceived in 1946 . School districts receive federal reimbursement for each school lunch served to students that meet the United States Department of Agriculture nutrition guidelines. These guidelines promote meal quality while commodity donations help the farmer and help schools keep down meal prices. Our lunch meals are planned on a two week menu cycle (one for Spring and one for Fall). We have a cycle for all Elementary Schools and a cycle for LCHS/ MS. Federal regulations require that we offer minimum portion sizes of meat, fruit and/or vegetable, grains/breads and fluid milk during every lunch meal service. The portion sizes are designed to meet the needs of growing children. We make a concerted effort to offer whole grain options and a choice of fresh or canned fruits and vegetables daily. Each school also offers at least 2 entrée choices each day. The menu cycle provides for variety and allows us to make the most efficient use of the donated commodities we receive. We offer 1% white milk and skim milk in white, chocolate, and strawberry as choices for our students daily. An analysis of a typical lunch menu is found elsewhere in this report card. The table below provides a synopsis of the lunch program, including participation and financial data for November 2011. School Breakfast The School Breakfast Program (SBP) was established in 1966. All Leslie County schools offer breakfast to our children daily. Studies show that children who participate in the School Breakfast Program have significantly higher standardized achievement test scores than non-participants. Children with access to school breakfast also had significantly reduced Below is a synopsis of the breakfast program for November 2011. After-School Snack Program The After-School Snack Program allows after-school care programs with regularly scheduled activities in an organized, structured environment to provide and claim reimbursement for snacks served to school-age children. The Food Service Department currently provides after school snacks to Stinnett Elementary for 21st Century program and Leslie Middle for ESS. All children who participate are served snacks at no charge. The Leslie County School District does not contract with any retail food establishments to provide food to our children. School menus for both elementary schools and LCHS/ MS are available at each site and on the district web site at Nutritional information for all food and beverage items sold to students during the school day by the cafeteria is available by contacting Melissa R. Morgan, Director School Food Services at (606) 672-2397 or by email at: Information concerning foods and beverages available for sale outside of the cafeteria can be obtained by contacting the school Principal. Food and beverage items that are sold as extras on the cafeteria lines or through vending machines or school stores are all required to meet the minimum nutritional standards as required by the Kentucky Board of Education. These standards were designed to limit access to items with little or no nutritional quality. There are no sales from vending machines or school stores until 30 minutes after the close of the last lunch period. A USDA study showed students who eat school meals are more likely to consume milk, meats, grain mixtures and vegetables compared to students who did not, including students who brought meals from home. Also, students who eat school meals have higher intakes of some vitamins and minerals, including calcium and Vitamin A -- nutrients that tend to be “problem nutrients” for kids. Cost-wise, schools work very hard to make sure that school meals are a good value. Take a look at the number of items typically offered to students at lunch -- an entrée, two servings of fruits and vegetables, a bread or grain item and 8 ounces of milk. It takes a real balancing act to beat that value with a bag lunch. --National Dairy Council
