Wellness Policy Overview
The Wellness Policy, revised in 2014, covers areas that include healthy food, physical education, health education, a safe and positive school climate, healthcare and social services, protecting the environment, and more. For more information on the policy, click here.
Lunches and other meals at school (such as breakfast and after-school snacks) are healthy, appealing, and meet standards for good nutrition. There are food guidelines for competitive foods (fundraisers, vending machines, and snack bars), school events, celebrations, and rewards/incentives. Click here to learn more.
Studies show that when children are physically fit, they pay more attention in school, do better on state exams, and stay in school longer. OUSD recognizes the positive benefits of physical education and physical activity for student health and academic achievement. Click here to learn more.
OUSD provides a variety of health care services, including nursing services. Many schools have on-site School Health Centers that provide medical, mental health, and health education services for students. At some of these centers, families can also receive health and social services. Click here to learn more.
