Two rural Routt County school districts are being recognized for their efforts to promote health and wellness initiatives within schools. Both the Hayden School District and the South Routt School District announced last week they were among 43 small districts or schools in Colorado to be named a Healthy School Champion for 2016. The awards, presented by the Colorado Education Initiative, Colorado’s Healthy Schools Collective Impact and the Colorado Health Foundation, are given for demonstrating how health and wellness is imbedded into the school culture.
