Nutrition at Avondale
La Mesa Spring Valley Schools has a comprehensive student wellness policy which outlines what, how, and who can serve and provide food for our students. The policy is designed to with the benefit of all students in mind. The complete wellness policy can be viewed on our District website (District Wellness Policy) . Sometimes families would like to bring snacks, food items etc. to school to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays. We ask that any food items you bring be in compliance with the District's wellness policy. Cakes, cupcakes, cookies, sugary beverages, etc. are not included in the items that are allowed to be distributed at school. There are many other ways you can help your child celebrate special occasions, and all our classroom teachers can help provide you with suggestions as well as directions on times and dates. The best way to ensure that food items are in compliance is to speak to your child's teacher in advance about any items brought to school for children.
