Welcome to Healthy BRSSD!

Healthy BRSSD.jpgHealthy BRSSD extends beyond our children's diet and activity to include emotional wellness and safety. Our mission is to raise awareness in the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District and the communities we serve to provide them with tools and education needed to help raise healthy and happy children. We hope to prevent health issues and concerns that may be present in our own school and community environment.

Introducing Healthy Schools Initiative

In September 2010, BRSSD was one of 4 local school districts to receive a 3-year grant from the Sequoia Healthcare District to implement a Coordinated School Health Model.  The grant was extended through the 2015-16 school year.

Needs assessments were completed with staff and administrators at each school site to determine the health and wellness priorities.

Site-based staff wellness teams and a district-wide health advisory committee consisting of parents, teachers, administrators and community partners meet quarterly to discuss health and wellness issues on a site and district-wide level.
