RANGELEY — Rangeley Lakes Regional School recently received a mini-grant award from Healthy Community Coalition of Greater Franklin County’s Healthy Maine Partnership program. Through this award the school purchased an assortment of exercise equipment, nutrition education materials, and a Ninja blender for a healthy smoothie day, according to a news release from the coalition.

The award recognizes the school’s commitment to work on its tobacco, substance abuse and wellness policies. The coalition provides area schools technical assistance by reviewing their policies and providing feedback.

The school has made great efforts with their tobacco policy and recently received tobacco-free signage to display throughout their campus. The signs are provided by the Partnership for A Tobacco-Free Maine.
