Central Okanagan Public Schools wants local radio to help them get all students and families at home moving at the same time each morning.

"In reference to the school district number, we ask local radio stations to announce a health break and play an uplifting dance song each weekday morning at 9:23 a.m. to promote physical activity and community while many students learn from home," according to School District No. 23 in a news release.

"We are all in this together," said Moyra Baxter, chairperson of the Board of Education. "While staff, students, and parents work hard to learn in new ways, it's important for families to know our community supports their efforts to adapt to the public health measures. We are grateful to be part of such a positive community in the Central Okanagan and we hope that people across the valley will take a break for some fun and physical activity."
