Wellness PolicyThe Perris Elementary School District Wellness Policy (BP5030) recognizes the link between student health and learning.
Assembly Bill 841
This bill prohibits a school, school district, or charter school from advertising food or beverages during the school day that do not comply with nutrition standards of Smart Snacks In Schools. Please review the Smart Snack List to determine if the food or beverage fundraiser and promotional materials are compliant with this new law.
