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.Foods Available at SchoolNutrition standards adopted by the district for all foods and beverages sold to students, including foods and beverages provided throughout the district's food service program, fundraisers, or other venues, shall meet or exceed state and federal nutrition standards.
Organizations are encouraged to use non-food items or healthy foods where appropriate, for fundraising. Staff are encouraged to avoid the use of non-nutritious foods as a reward for students' academic performance, accomplishments, or classroom behavior.
Parents/guardians or other volunteers are encouraged to support the district's nutrition education program by considering nutritional quality when electing any snacks which they may donate for occasional class parties, and by eliminating foods or beverages that do not meet nutritional standards and are not commercially prepared.
