The Office of Health, Safety & Physical Education exists to support the students and staff in The School District of Philadelphia by providing curricular and instructional guidance. Our children are responsible for making daily decisions that have lifelong impact on their health and well-being. It is the responsibility of schools and families to teach children how to be healthy because children and youth cannot learn if they are not healthy. There is sound research connecting health and academic achievement.
