Girl Eating School Lunch
At Wrentham Public Schools, we strive to ensure our students and staff are healthy, happy, and productive. This means protecting the emotional and physical health of all students is our top priority. Towards this end, we have developed a set of detailed guidelines for managing work, play, snacks, and lunch. While built with the classroom in mind, most of these practices apply out of school, too. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our policies.

Food items provided for general consumption must comply with MA General Law c 111 223 "An Act Relative to School Nutrition":

  • Water, low-fat milk, and 8 ounces of 100% juice
  • Fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Snacks made of at least 51% whole grain, 200 calories or fewer per serving, and pre-packaged
  • No artificial sweeteners or trans fats

Recess! Card IconRecess!Top of Page

Students have 20 minutes of recess every day, outside (weather permitting) in addition to at least one physical education class a week. Students who need help in developing gross motor skills also have periodic Adaptive PE classes. Recess is supervised by multiple staff who carry a walkie talkie in the event that they need to communicate with the school nurse or office. Wrentham Public Schools does not practice class-wide discipline by denying recess to students. Individuals may be required to finish assignments before going out or to sit out of play for five minutes due to poor conduct.

Kindergarten through Grade 3 alternate between two areas for recess. One is an open field behind the school with a shed of equipment which includes hula hoops, jump ropes, rhythm flags, and balls for various sports. At this time the school has established a committee to look into the possibility of building a new play structure in this area. The second Delaney recess spot is  in front of the Vogel Building. It has a smaller open area for running around, a play structure with swings, and black top for playing four square or drawing with chalk.
Preschool students have a brief daily recess in an ADA compliant, enclosed playground in front of the Vogel Building and beside the one used by the other grades.

Grades 4 through 6 use a playground next to the building for recess. It includes a basketball court, a play structure with zip-line and monkey bars, and an open area for various sports. General sports equipment like basketballs, jump ropes and Frisbees are provided, and students are allowed to bring their own sidewalk chalk or footballs. Students are not allowed to bring personal electronic devices out to recess.
