In the event of bad weather, we all want the latest information and want it quickly. As with previous episodes of bad weather, information was posted here just as soon as it was available to us. Posting it here is the most efficient way we can get the information out, and get it out completely, to a large number of people. While we pass information such information as school closings on to the media, we have no control over the detail of information that is passed on to the public. Here, we can go into as much detail as needed. For example, elementary, junior high, and high school dismissal times will always be different from each other because the same buses which carry elementary school home also return after that route and pick up high school students and then junior high students.
Nationwide, 16 percent of children and teens are overweight and some studies suggest that in Alabama the rate of obesity is nearly 40 percent. The Talladega City School District and the Child Nutrition Program are doing something to help. All K-5th grade children will receive a DVD entitled, “KidFit, Healthy Kids for America’s Future!” The KidFit Program provides children and their parents an opportunity to learn about healthy choices and lifestyles and to discuss them as a family. The entertaining and instructional DVD focuses on eating right and exercising for better health.
A brochure included in the DVD, supplies parents with additional websites to gain even more information. Here are just a few:
The Alabama KidFit program, produced through the Corporate Foundation for children, has government and corporate support, including the Alabama Department of Education, the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries, the Alabama Department of Public Health, and Alabama Power Company.
