District Wellness Policy
The Robla School District's Wellness Policy is meant to inspire and empower a shift in culture that will increase healthy eating and physical activity among our students by creating environments that support healthy choices.
The Board of Trustees recognizes the link between student health and learning and desires to provide a comprehensive program promoting healthy eating and physical activity for district students. The Robla School District is committed to protecting children’s health, well-being and ability to learn to their fullest potential by supporting a school environment that promotes healthy choices and fosters lifelong habits with respect to eating and physical activity.

All foods & beverages served, offered and sold during the school day meet or exceed the USDA’s Smart Snacks in School nutrition standards. This includes snacks that are not part of a federally reimbursed child nutrition program, school fundraisers, birthday parties, holiday parties, and school-wide celebrations (up to four exemptions will be granted each school year at the Principal’s discretion).
