Health & Wellness Policy

The La Mesa-Spring Valley School District promotes health-enhancing nutrition practices. According to the food guidelines sent out in the fall we are encouraging nutritious foods be brought for classroom celebrations: fruits, vegetables, whole grain crackers, pretzels, 100% fruit juice or frozen juice bars. Examples of non-nutritious foods with a more than 35% sugar content or fat content: soda, candy, chewing gum, snow cones, chips, fried foods, cookies, cupcakes, donuts, candy coated popcorn, & cotton candy. On your child’s birthday handing out special pencils or stickers is a good alternative to food.
