RUSD Wellness Policy
Our District has developed a Wellness Policy that is focused on improving the health of students. The policy was developed by the health and wellness advisory council that includes teachers, parents, administrators, and the district nurse.

Rowland Unified School District Approved Food List - Smart Snacks
USDA's Smart Snacks in school standards are practical, science-based nutrition standards for all foods and beverages sold or served to students during the school day.
The new rule went into effect July 1, 2014 and merges the previous California Nutrition Standards.
The following list is of foods and beverages that meet the standards for all grade levels. This list is not all inclusive. Alternative items may be available at different stores. Manufactures' ingredients and distribution change frequently.
If you have additional questions, please contact Maria Davila, Director of Nutrition Services at (626) 854-8312.
Sharing the Message of Wellness
One of our goals is to share the message of nutrition and wellness via our department's Web site that emphasizes the importance of nutrition AND fitness. Our site provides information on the nutrition and fitness for teachers, parents, and students, as well as, a variety of learning tools.
