Safe & Healthy Schools and Wellness Committee
Guthrie Public Schools
Parents and families,
We wanted to take this opportunity to inform each of you about our site based Safe and Healthy Schools Committees. Each school in Guthrie has one of these committees and they meet quarterly at the sites. Parents are always welcome to attend. Members of these committees discuss the following items at each meeting:
- Health and nutrition
- Playground safety
- Building needs in reference to students safety
- Student mental health (bullying and suicide prevention)
- Any other concerns that are site specific
In addition to these committees, our district also has a Wellness Committee that contains a liaison from each school site. This committee meets each semester. The liaisons include:
School Site Members: School Site Members: District Site Members:
Rusty Crockett – Cotteral Keith Hedge - Central Dr. Michelle Chapple - Central Office
Chancie Helton – Fogarty Tristen Bender - Charter Oak Carmen Walters - Central Office
Susan Whitehead – Junior High Bret Stone - High School Jana Wanzer - Central Office
Belinda Stone - GUES Leigh Fuller - Child Nutrition

The Wellness Committee’s goal is to ensure that each site is in compliance with the district’s wellness policy, and to discuss any needs or issues that require attention. Our student’s health, safety, and overall well-being are the committee’s top priority. If you have any issues or concerns please contact the site liaison at your child’s individual school building.
Thank you for being a partner in your child’s safe and healthy school experience!
