Chula Vista Elementary School District is dedicated to the health and well-being of each and every student. We can not do it alone, and with your help we will be successful in the important development of each student's mind and body. The District plays a critical role in curbing the epidemic of childhood health issues like obesity, heart disease, and diabetes which are directly associated with poor nutrition and inactivity. Please see our monthly Wellness Newsletter for more information and interesting facts.

In 2004, Congress passed a law requiring every school district that uses federal dollars for school breakfast or lunch to create a local wellness policy by the start of the 2006-07 school year. (CVESD BP 5030) The District’s local wellness policy applies to every school in the District. The policy will assist schools in improving the health of students by promoting physical activity and nutritious food. At CVESD, a Wellness Committee consisting of principals, teachers, nurses, community organizations, parents, students and school food service professionals, was created to assist and advise the district on health related issues and ways to continually improve the wellness policy.
