SFUSD's Wellness Policy
Recognizing that social, emotional, and physical health are fundamental for each student to achieve his or her maximum potential, SFUSD has a longstanding commitment to creating school environments that promote and protect children’s health, well-being, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical fitness. In April 2015, the Board of Education approved an updated wellness policy that was developed through a collaborative community process. Wellness Policy (P5167) meets all the provisions of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (HHFKA), and provides all schools with a framework to actively promote the health and wellness of all students; it includes guidelines related to nutrition, nutrition education, food and beverage marketing, physical education physical activity, and staff wellness. The Wellness Policy is meant to inspire and empower a shift in culture that will increase healthy eating and physical activity among our students by creating environments that encourage and support healthy choices.
Check out our new Wellness Policy Booklet to see how you can be well and do well, too!
