Sharing the Message of Wellness

The overarching goal of the TUSD Wellness Policy is to promote health and wellness, and to convey positive, consistent messages to all District students in accordance with current law. We want to support our students and enable them to achieve more by learning healthy behaviors that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. 

Key Areas of Wellness

The Wellness Policy focuses on three keys areas:

  • School health, safety and environment
  • Nutrition
  • Physical activity and physical education
  • Family Involvement

How do I know if the foods I want to serve to the students for a school event are compliant?

You can use the Project Lean "Food Calculator" to see if the foods/beverages are compliant.
