FAQs

Why an Atlantic Healthy Schools initiative?

At Atlantic Health System, our vision is to “empower our communities to be the healthiest in the nation.” We recognize that healthy communities will require innovative collaboration with diverse organizations, including the more than 500 public and private schools in our area.  Additionally, at Atlantic Health System we know that health and health behaviors start early in life – by partnering with schools and providing students with the tools they need to live healthy lives while they are young, we can indeed fulfill our vision.

What does the Atlantic Healthy Schools initiative offer?

Atlantic Health System has had a long-standing relationship with local schools, as well as a history of offering a wide variety of educational services and events.  This new initiative is designed to be a partnership program that allows us to build longer-term, more comprehensive relationships with area schools, and share best practices among schools using a network approach. Recognizing that there are numerous pieces of the “school health” puzzle – from nutrition to administration, health education to afterschool programming – the Atlantic Healthy Schools initiative will be a forum for enhanced collaboration. We’ll give schools one-stop-access to a menu of resources and programs provided by all Atlantic Health System hospitals (including Morristown, Overlook, Newton and Chilton medical centers and Goryeb Children’s Hospital) designed to help create healthier schools. These will include services that focus on capacity building of school staff in terms of health and health promotion, as well as tools and procedures to create healthier school contexts.

Why should my school join?

The Atlantic Healthy Schools initiative will help solidify and mobilize the health initiatives already going on at your school. As a member school, your school will be given priority access to classroom presentations, parent programs, professional development workshops, online resources, and mini grant opportunities.

Is there any start-up or annual fee associated with being a member of Atlantic Healthy Schools?

There is no start-up fee or annual fee associated with being a member of Atlantic Healthy Schools.

How far in advance do programs need to be requested?

Programs should be requested at least 2 months in advance. All efforts will be made to honor requests in a timely manner.

Is there a limit to the number of programs I can request for my school?

Only one program can be requested for each grade within a school during that school year.

What if there is a program topic I am interested in that is not listed on the Atlantic Healthy Schools list of available programs?

If you would like information about whether or not Atlantic Healthy Schools can accommodate a specific program request, or you would like to make a suggestion about a particular program that you think would be helpful for Atlantic Healthy Schools to develop, you can send an email with your request/suggestion.
